A Card for Hope and Encouragement

Hello everyone, and Happy Monday!  I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.  We had gorgeous 60 degree weather here, and I spent a lot of it hiking and eating with family 🙂  So wonderful 🙂  Before I start, I want to remind you to comment on and share last week’s post for your chance to win a prize pack including handmade cards, flowers, a covered notepad, and some ribbon!  I’ll be choosing a winner this Friday, February 28th, so be sure to enter and check back then!

Anyway, I have a new card to share with you today!  Take a look:

Last summer, I took a day and went through all of my paper scraps.  I matched them all up and grouped them together with paperclips so I could have little card-starter kits for those times when my mojo just isn’t flowing or I need a card quickly.  This card came from one of those kits!  I punched the top 2 corners of the navy paper and layered it over light blue vellum to start.  Then, I punched the leafy border from a scrap of white paper and fussy-cut the leafy image from a piece of scrapbook paper.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment onto another piece of the blue vellum, layered it over a piece of white, added rhinestones to the flower border, and popped it onto foam squares.  Then, I just added some matching ribbon and twine and a few handmade flowers, et voila!

I left the inside very simple, with plenty of space for an encouraging note:

That’s it for me!  I hope you enjoyed today’s card.  Don’t forget to enter the contest!  Have a lovely day!
