You can do anything.

Hello crafty friends!
I hope all of you are having a wonderful week. In spite of the cold, we have a beautiful sunny day in Huntsville. I wanted to share a card I made for a dear friend who is going back to work after many years of being a stay at home mom.
I used this awesome sketch at CAS(E) this sketch # 60.








Instead of a vertical panel for my card I used a die cut flower by Memory box, that I cut 4 times, I embossed in gold one layer and then adhered to two pieces, I adhered the forth a little to the side to give it a shadow effect. I used 'Worn lipstick' distressed ink for the sentiment panel and for the background. I'm very inspired by Donna, love how she does the inking of her die cuts or panels, so I'm practicing. (smile).
Thanks for your visit! Have a blessed rest of the week!
Loly

  2. Really soft, beautiful card. The gold emboss looks like a store bought embellishment- very polished. I like how you were inspired by the sketch, but didn't make an exact duplicate.

  8. You've done your panel every bit as well as Donna does, Loly! She will be proud of you!! I adore the way you have designed your card for the challenge.

    I think you are sweet to make your friend a card to encourage her as she takes this huge jump back into working outside the home! Hugs, Darnell
