Happy Saturday! The weather is warming up a little bit in Minnesota, though we are a long way from it feeling like Spring here. My driveway is an ice skating rink!!!!
Today I wanted to share a card I made using scraps from the Echo Park This & That Charming collection. I love this collection - the color palette can be masculine or feminine. My life has turned upside down over the last few months, so I felt like making a card that exudes encouragement - "You are Brave, Clever, Strong."
I had lots and lots of fun playing with the papers in the collection. I cut out the banner from the "Border Strips" paper, got it wet, crumbled it up, then layered them on top of each other. I love the effect it created!
The word cards are cut from the "Primer" paper. For the background of the card, I used several papers from the collection. I love creating my own backgrounds using multiple patterns - it always seems to make the card pop!
To finish the card off, I added some Caribbean twine from The Twinery. I am playing with the banners challenge at The Twinery blog!
Here's to hoping your day is full of encouragement!
