It's Your Time To Shine
Today is your day! Each day we have is a gift, so let’s make today your day to shine. We all have our ups and downs, but for today, let’s all be grateful for something wonderful in our life, and let it shine on everyone we meet. A smile, a kind word, a small gesture, can all make a big difference in someone’s day, so let’s all get out there and shine.
My card today is for the Fab Friday challenge. It is a sketch to inspire us! Here is the banner for the challenge.
I used the Daisy Lane stamp set, and coordinating Medium Daisy punch. I wanted a really soft look for this card, so I stamped off Soft Sea Foam ink on the fern stamp I used for my background of Very Vanilla card stock. Stamping off can give you a really different look from using your ink at full strength, and it is easy to do. Simply ink up your stamp as usual, and then stamp gently on a piece of scrap paper before stamping on your card stock. It gives a lovely soft look to your stamping. I stamped the daisy at full strength, twice, punched them out and mounted one on top of the other for a nice full flower. My sentiment is stamped in Garden Green ink, on Soft Sea Foam card stock. I added a piece of Garden Green Double-Stitched Ribbon from the new Holiday catalogue. This exciting new catalogue goes live in just a few days, so make sure you add this ribbon to your wish list. It’s great for year-round crafting! A Gold Faceted Gem finishes off my daisy and my card.
Make today your time to shine, and have a great one!
