Hope Lives Grungy Graffiti card

After suffering from a terrible migraine all day, I wasn't sure if I would play with paper today or not. 
When I first saw the sketch for this weeks Sketch Challenge for SCS. SC690
I decided to pass because with my head hurting, I wanted an easier sketch. However, my friend Pam challenged me to do the sketch that stretched me out of my comfort zone.

There was still time to make a card about Spring and Faith for the STAMPlorations March challenge
to make my non-traditional Resurrection Day card.

I was going for a graffiti look. I made a stylized cross with the linked circle elements criss crossing eachother. I stamped the word HOPE on the tilted panel. I took an alphabet set to stamp LIVES on the grungy graffiti background. The small panel was a piece of cardboard that I painted green and blue. The three elements on that panel are 3 small puzzle pieces  I also added a piece of cheesecloth and made a piano keyboard. Like the cards I made yesterday, my "Use only Scraps" challenge was continued on this card. 

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
