Don't you just love Daisy peeking up from the bottom of the photo? She's my cuddle-bug.
And yes, I wear Birkenstocks with fleece socks. Most comfortable shoes made and toasty warm with fleece.
My latest card series goes way back with a small script background from a very old, wood-mounted Hero Arts set. It's just a small rectangle of old handwriting, but it's spoken to me for years. Time to take it out and play again.
Today's card was inspired by a color combo on Pinterest of shades of gray and yellow.
My stash of sympathy and thinking-of-you cards is running low, so you'll notice lots of those themes in the next week or so.
Hero Arts Antique Engravings is an old, discontinued set but it's perfect for vintage-style cards. The script pairs nicely with the butterfly for a soft, pretty look, but I wanted the sentiment to stand out strongly so it's in black and has a large, classic, serif font. The soft yellow bling (colored with a Copic) unifies the design.
These sorts of cards truly are my favorite...one layer, some ink, a little bling, lots of white space.
If you don't have this set, you could mask off a small area for a larger script background. The layout is versatile and could accommodate lots of different stamps. Give it a go!
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
