Happy Friday sweet friends! A short post today – all is good in my world and I hope it is in yours too! Today I’m sharing an ombre watercolored background with ombre dyed ribbon on a card about what’s so dear to us all – family! How very true these words are so I thought it perfect for today’s giveaway.
This saying is one of my very favorites and of course the sentiment is perfectly cut with a circle. I’ve been so fortunate lately to have had so many of my family visit me. This past weekend was a mother/daughter dining out, shopping, binge watching Game of Thrones, and pajamas kind of weekend. As I stop to realize all there is to be grateful for, life doesn’t get better than this. I know it sounds silly . . . I can get in the car and go visit any time I want, but as she pulled out of the driveway and reached the end of the street – a flood of tears. The absolute joy of family!
A die cut background or embossing background set the stage for a wonderful palette of texture. I love working with full backgrounds so I used Spellbinders French Harmony and highlighted my sentiment cut with Spellbinders Standard Circles Small by backing with Spellbinders Stately Circles.
