Hang in There with OSC

Hi there! This card was actually meant to be posted yesterday, but I spent too long crafting and my blogging time was sacrifices - sorry! Now you'll get multiple posts as I'm excited to show you what I was crafting on. This card is for the One Stop Craft photo inspiration challenge hosted by me! There's still time to join us and win a prize from our great sponsor DewDropz.

Sketch Inspiration ~ Truly Scrumptious Challenge #40
Use the sketch with the option to add a knot.
Photo Inspiration ~ One Stop Crafts Challenge #96
This is one of the photos you can use as inspiration in the challenge. I used a caterpillar on my card.
365 Cards Day 159 ~ Card Recipe #5
5x5 Card (base); 2 3x3 patterned papers (matting image); 2 Buttons (corner); 4 Blossoms (flowers are pattern on DP); Sentiment; 1 image
365 Cards Day 29 ~ A Certain Sentiment: Hang in There
365 Cards Day 181 ~ Opposite Day
The challenge was to show an opposite from your life in your card. I used a feeling. I'm a very upbeat optimistic person, so I created a card featuring sadness.
Clearly Delightful Challenge #9 ~ Use a Doodle Pantry Image

My Creation

Image Detail
I added Diamond Glaze to the leaves and cut out the image to the brown stems became the background.

A snippet of ribbon destined for the trash bin becomes the perfect knotted accent; there's no need to wrap it around the paper. I used Stickles for dimension, sparkle and texture just by highlighting the design in the papers.
