Hope you can cling to {day 30}

 The tied up closed view for the team challenge card. this uses the Double gate fold tutorial found here on Splitcoast.

The open standing view. I decided these are supposed to be actual challenges right? so, since I have tried most of the messy inky ones I did pick this fancy fold on purpose. ( I am thinking as much as I love this paper, I think I would pick something totally different if I were doing it again.) the contrast in scales of the roses is jarring like this to me. I think maybe a paper with a floral on one side and or a gingham on the other may be better. but, I am not so sure the stripes would line up so maybe to random swirly papers. anyways, this challenge hides here if you want to go check it out and play along.

For Yvette's challenge to be tough as nails found here.  the hammer and tape measure are up on different sized pop dots. the spackle ribbon I have had for at least 12 years ( so, no clue who makes it anymore) found it in my box of ribbons that would have had drywall tapes haha. anyways. thought maybe someone may need a card for their tool guy. All the tools are from the darkroom door tool shed set and the sentiment is A Muse.

For Ceal's ( she is a survivor!!) Her challenge is an you got this theme. so, I kept the gal un colored so she could be any woman and just colored her dress. the gal and be strong are from choose hope by my favorite things and the you got this is from their encouraging words set. the SU medallion was heat embossed with copper on pink vellum and that was the reason I added the square frame to give me a place to hide glue on the left side.
