Hope

Happy Sunday!

I am always honored and excited about my day to post with Pinque Peacock and today is that day.  I'm a lover all all things Pinque, but Jessica's buttons and stick pins are my MOST favorite.  I use one or the other...or BOTH on many of my projects... I just can't get enough of 'em!


Today my project is a card/gift.  I added the little "pocket" on front of this blank card to hold a book mark with a beautiful, encouraging sentiment.
"Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul." ~Dickinson

The stamp is by Verve called "Hope Perches" and the sentiment is perfect with the feather paper from Sassafras and that little charm by Paper Studio. Along with the Pinque goodies you'll find more of my favorite go to crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM.  It's from the Coffee and Cream bundle and it's yummy and I love it.  I "pleated" the Latte ribbon to add that extra layer of fru fru on the front of the little pouch. You'll find the cream ribbon on the bow along with some Jute String from Sparkly Sweet Craft Notions too.
Here's a closer look at the pouch on front.  
I created an "envelope" with a glassine bag and a lovely ribbon along with a scrap of sassafras paper. If I have to mail a card like this I would send it inside a padded envelope to keep it safe, otherwise it goes in a little sack like this with a pretty ribbon.  

Thanks for stopping today, "hope" you enjoyed your visit!
