LIFE

The Impression Obsession challenge is to make a project showing something you're thankful for.  Of course, that's a long list, but decided this quote (Impression Obsession Follow Your Heart, CL407) sums it up.  In my business I'm constantly reminded of how brief & precious life is--not perfect, but precious.  Since I wanted the quote to be the focus of my card, I used Lisa's design HERE substituting Impression Obsession's Heart Flourish, D2145 for the wreath stamp.  The colors are Navy, pink & plum--pretty together, don't you think?  The words do stamp a little funny, but I tried several times & used Versafine ink--I think it's actually the intended look. The navy borders are made with a Fiskars border punch.  Thanks for stopping by--love hearing what you think.

  2. Hello Greta
    A wonderful quote,what is great about this card is that it has a very attractive design the flourish grabs the eye, but it does not take away from the text. Fabulous.
