Today's card, second in the week long series of friendship and/or inspirational cards, features one of my favorite quotes:
She sure had it right.
I've used one of my favorite shabby color combinations, pink and brown, on this one starting with a kraft base and layering plaid and floral prints with dark brown mats for definition. I distressed the edges of the floral print and turned one of the corners down.
The quote was heat embossed with copper metallic embossing powder, the edges were inked, and then I layered it onto a dark brown shadow mat with the edges also embossed in metallic copper.
Of course this kind of card called for a shabby bow, so I tied one of my favorite kind, a "messy" bow, using caramel colored seam binding. Then I added a couple of loops of string pearls and centered it with a tiny pink posy that I painted with caramel shimmer paint to tone the pinkness down a bit. An additional posy adorns the opposite corner.
A bit of stitching completes the front.
The inside was finished with contrasting layers of card stock stamped with faint flourishes. I keep designs like this very light so that a personal message can be written over them.
Thank you so much for joining me, and I wish you a lovely day full of delightful possibilities. Because NOTHING is impossible.
