Today's card shows how easy it is to balance a design with two elements on a square. The strong vertical feather and strong horizontal sentiment balance well, but the black draws the eye strongly to the sentiment, which is, after all, the main idea of this card. The feather is support here...pretty support, but support nevertheless.
I adore this sentiment from Emily Dickinson, and it's so useful on a card to send to someone who is struggling. (And who doesn't struggle, at least every now and then!?!)
I chose a simple silver-and-black color scheme, and though the picture doesn't show it well, the silver Brilliance ink is absolutely stunningly shimmery. Rounding the corners of the raised panel definitely enhanced the soft feel of this card.
Is there someone you know who could use a little lift of hope right now? Perhaps you could make them a hopeful card and send it. April is the cruelest month, and the timing might be just right.
