Have Courage!

Hello and a very Happy Easter,

I have a very CAS one layer card today inspired by a few challenges:



I simply stamped this leave from PTI, first masking off the top part of the leaves so it fitted better with the sketch I used at Freshly Made Sketches-I flipped the sketch and as I don't have any fancy curved dies I came up with the idea of using the curved part of this stamp instead. After stamping this sentiment from Verve, I embossed the card with my fav linen embossing plate. It was quite dull when I took the photo so you can't see this so well (I took the photo so many times but the weather was not helping!!). I rounded off both edges to follow the flow of the curved leaf.

I do love this sentiment and I like to not add to much to a card with this on because I like it to be the focus. I think it says it all and great for someone who needs a little extra help to stay strong.

I will enter this into:

Less is More-curve-the curve of my leaf and the curved edges of the card

Enjoy your Easter x

  3. This is so stylish with the softer colour of the curved spray and the bolder sentiment overlapping it. What a fab look! The clean background really draws the eye into the images. Love it! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

  5. The curvy lines provided by the leaf and that fantastic sentiment make this a really special card and version of the sketch.
