Believe In Yourself

I love this sentiment from Flourishes!

I think it is the simple things that awaken in us a desire to push our limits, expand our potential.  Perhaps because we realize that those “simple things” are in fact so much more; indeed, they awe and inspire us, and we realize that our appreciation of their gifts, must mean that we too, as simple beings, are capable of such gifts.  Believe in yourself !!

I’ve made my card today for The Play Date Cafe color challenge.  I stamped the background using Flourishes Cherry Blossoms  by repeating the arrangement of stamps that I placed on an arylic block.  This made it quick to stamp out the entire sheet of Kraft card stock.  I cut it down to 5 1/2″ square for the the 5 3/4″ square card base.  I used some cream colored lace and an old earring back from my stash of vintage jewelery findings for the embellishments. I sponged the layers and distressed the edges as well.  I love these colors so I really enjoyed making this card!

Thanks for stopping by!
