Here's what HOPE looks like to me......

IMG_0413

After much struggle, I decided a butterfly was the perfect example of "Hope".  There is a saying "Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly".   Sounds like a new beginning and very hopeful to me.

I choose warm gold with a touch of blue and a sprits of orange for the background.  Then I copied the butterflies, from the Graphic Fairy site, onto tissue paper and glued that over the background and then layer the beautiful white paper with the rings over all.

If you missed it, this is part of a series,,,,,here are the other pieces.

IMG_0418Faith has a green background and a sparrow.

IMG_0417  Love is represented by blue with some red overspray and a little wood red heart.

Some Biblical versions use the word "charity" instead of "love, making the two words interchangeable......so I did a piece for each.  So here is Charity.........

These are just lovely! I love the set once it is all put together. I like your choice of a butterfly for "hope". Very appropriate, I would say. Good job!

I think the butterfly is a wonderful choice for 'hope'. What a beautiful set you have created. I love all your daffodils, and one good thing about cooler weather is you will be able to enjoy them for a longer blooming season. I hope the weather changes a bit for you, though!
