Sending Happy Thoughts

The inspiration for this card came from one of my reuseable shopping bags. I love finding inspiration everywhere, what's the strangest place you ever found inspiration?
I embossed the flowers on avocado, raspberry, and sunrise paper, punched them out, and added chocolate centers with a clear page pebble on top. I hand drew the white box with the help of my trusty ruler (sentiment was stamped first). I pierced a row on the bottom because it just seemed so empty!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
stamps - Beautiful Blooms (PTI), March KOM (Unity)
paper - kraft, avocado, raspberry, sunrise
ink - versamark, choc
acc - white ep, circle punch, clear page pebbles, white gel pen, mat pack & piercer

soooo cute! love the thin white border (did you draw that). I always love the patterns on my Victoria Secret cotton panties, kind of weird, maybe not.

okay, so I'm back because I sound like a doofus asking you a question when you told us how in your post. Guess I should pay attention to what I read ;) have a great day, Becky!

Love this! The big circles overlapping the lines of the box are so effective!

Don't you just love the look of drawing a line with a sentiment breaking the line? So clean and pretty!

Love this one, Becky! The white box is fab!

Marie said...

Oh, I love this Becky! I guess who doesn't since that's what most people are saying first in their comments ;) Anyway - I really like the rectangle you drew - those seem to be trendy right now and I know mine would look like my 4-year old drew it and wrote the words in it rather than me. Yours is fabulous!! Great card!
