Sweet blog friends, can I just tell you that it’s a magnificent day! It’s simply glorious! I picked a sentiment that has been sitting on the edge of my desk for the better part of a month and I knew there would be a right day to make it into a card. The Serenity Prayer is one I never tire of giving and I never tire of getting. It’s a blessing to be reminded what to pursue and what to let go of. Powerful, hunh? My sweet friend Suzanne at Quietfire Design penned this and it’s simply gorgeous – a welcome addition to my stash as I know it will get multiple uses. Ever not know what to say to someone for awkward occasions, both happy and sad? My experience leads me to know that even if you are at a loss for words, saying something — anything — is a blessing. That’s where this little gem comes into play, I’ve sent it for sympathy, divorce, didn’t get the job, lost the house, someone who was struggling with whether to voice a truth, or even just because…you get the picture :-)
I love how Spellbinders™ Radiant Rectangles can be used as a frame – I chose it because it was a good size for this largish sentiment (3.75″ tall). To break up the space and give me a place for embellishment, I crossed it with a panel using A2 Scalloped Borders One. This grouping sits on a cream layer cut using Spellbinders™ 5 x 7 Matting Basics B and then of course my card base was made using Spellbinders™ 5 x 7 Matting Basics A (yields a card sized at 4-7/8″ x 6-7/8″).
