Hey y’all, Happy Friday!! Oh, and happy end of March already. You know what tomorrow is right? We’ll I’m not fooling but I’m planning to have a blog post again tomorrow. In the mean time, today’s card features a sweet sentiment from Quietfire Design – The Greatest Strength. So often I select a sentiment because it resonates with me, in something that has happened over the week. This week – for no reason – I rolled over to frustration. When I pulled this stamp out, it reminded me that the race is long and is not often won by might by but by patience and gentleness in the long haul. This is so hard to remember when you are trying to get somewhere fast but several small achievements and blessings were so helpful in correcting my course.
Today I built my card on a printed cream card base 6.5″ wide by 5″ tall that I cut (both layers at once) a bottom border onto using Spellbinders Graceful Scallops. I love how that turned out and I played around with stitching floss through the holes. I didn’t keep the stitching for this card, but it will win its way onto the next card I make using Graceful Scallops. The focal layer is built in three tiers with Spellbinders Labels 29 on the bottom (adhered with double foam tape), followed by Spellbinders Victorian Bow. Directly on top of that I stacked Spellbinders Label 55 Decorative Element and finished with Spellbinders Classic Ovals SM (adhered with a single layer of foam tape).
For new readers, every Friday it’s my pleasure to give away a card. The card goes to a randomly picked reader (worldwide) who leaves a comment in our conversation.
