Hope is the Thing - HYCCT

"Hope is the thing..." is one of the Hope You Can Cling To challenges at Splitcoast Stampers.  This is the beginning of a verse by Emily Dickenson.  It's so beautiful I have to post it here:

Hope is the thing with feathers
that perches in the soul
and sings the tune without the words
and never stops at all.

I particularly like the "never stops" part. 

Bridget's challenge is to make a card inspired by this verse.

I immediately thought of this stamp and die set from My Favorite Things and decided to combine this challenge with MFT's sketch.  Of course for October pink is a must, and since I have this paper with pink bird cages as the design - well the card practically made itself. 

Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "Contempo Cage" and "Clearly Sentimental About Audrey Hepburn"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black" and "Bamboo Leaves"; Versa Magic "Pink Petunia"
paper - Stampin' Up "Certainly Celery" and "Pretty in Pink" card stock; My Favorite Things "Pink Lemonade" card stock; Basic Grey "Porcelain" dp
Miscellaneous - Embossing folder; pink cord; pink ribbon charm; button; heart pearls; pearls; mini brads; My Favorite Things "Circle Stax" die-namics; machine stitching

Here's the challenges:
