Life....


Hello Sweets!

**Happy that this card was selected as Winner at Playing in Paradise.  I am so appreciative**


An encouraging  and uplifting sentiment.
I started the card by adhering my pieced patterned paper to the Pacific Point card base followed by wrapping a length of vintage seam binding vertically around the card front finishing off with a fussy bow, button and twine adding a pretty pearl to the center of the button. 
The sentiment was carefully stamped on my die-cut focal panels adding a Flower and pearls.  The lower right corner a few  buttons were added as final decorative touch.

I drew my layout inspiration from the Artful Delight Card Sketch Challenge.


And the colors were inspired by Color Throwdown colors of the week. 

My friend Jessi, is hosting the challenge this week at Scrapbooker's Paradise, and I thought I would join in with an encouragement card! :-)
PPC #66
I hope you all are doing something wonderful this weekend.
