She turned her can’ts into cans and her dreams into plans. Kobi Yamada Doesn’t that just make you take in a breath of fresh air and know that all is good in the world? Always on the look out for inspiration, it can be found everywhere. I’m a lover of scripture and a lover of inspirational quotes – they are something that can make the day turn on a dime and put a skip in your step. This upbeat quote comes straight from one of my Pinterest boards – gotta love that, I’m always discovering something totally awesome there that makes me smile. Speaking of smiling, I wanted to pop in today and let you know that this week I’m going to have some blog candy – you’ll be tickled when you see what it is. In the meantime another very feminine card, because you know I’m just in that kind of mood.
I set up the layers using Spellbinders® Matting Basics B and topped it off with a border cut from Spellbinders® A2 Scallop Border One. The pretty filigree square is made using Spellbinders® Ornate Squares and it perfectly frames the sentiment I chose from Life Affirming, a set from Wordsworth. It says Yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream.
So to recap the layers I used, I started with a card base 7-1/8″ x 5-1/8″, foam tape (optional), green matting layer cut using Spellbinders Matting Basics B measuring 6-5/8″ x 4-5/8″, white layer 6-1/2″ x 4-1/2″, foam tape (optional), pink matting layer 6-1/4″ x 4-1/4″, design paper layer cut using Spellbinders Matting Basics B measuring 6-1/8″ x 4-1/8″, A2 Scallop Border One. Attache ribbons and sentiment on appropriate layer.
