This is the second post today. Wow! That's the first time I've had to say that. Anyway, have you ever noticed how much a compliment can really make someones day? Especially when they're having a bad day or just don't feel like themselves. Sending a card is such an easy way to give someone a pick me up and yet, I seem to forget or run out of time during the day to get it done. A few challenges this week got me to thinking outside of my obligatory card box. You know the box with all the birthdays, thank yous, anniversaries, etc. that you have to send cards for. Thinking all this brought together the following card:
The image is from Stamping Bella. We've all had "those" days. The sentiment was put together with a font set from Just Right Stampers. It says, "even on your roughest day" and the inside says, "you are beautiful."
The sketch came from Sweet Sketch Wednesday. The color came from Raise the Bar where the challenge was to use your favorite color. I love purple, but hardly ever use it. I am quite happy with it's application here. Thanks to Paperplay Challenges I didn't use any patterned paper though I did emboss the strip along the botton and highlight it with sponged ink. It will also go up on Magical Crafts. I hope you enjoy it and I hope you will think of someone special today.
