Forever and for all eternity

Happy last day of 2013! Wow can you believe it?

I hope this finds everyone moving into 2014 healthy and happy and it will be a prosperous year for you!

I have a card to share today that features Paper Smooches Pretty Phases.  I got pretty girly with this card. I started with a Buff Ivory card base onto which I added a piece of Graphic 45 designer paper that has had the edges distressed. I added the sentiment Forever and for all eternity onto a subtle polka dot print paper in chocolate ink and added to the lower portion of the card front. 
At the top of the card, I cut a doily in half and inked and distressed it for a vintage touch followed by layering a die-cut doily border. I spritzed a chipboard embossed frame with Heidi Swapp Mistables and added to the center of the card. Next I painted a dove with cream acrylic paint and added to the frame. I added a light sanding to both the frame and dove. 
Final finishing touches include adding a fussy seam binding bow that can be found at My Craft Spot and various flowers from my stash.

I am going to join in and share at Paper Smooches Sparks - Anything Goes.  
I am also joining in at:  Sunday {Fun}day - December Linky Party,  D.L. Art - Thankful Thursday, Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes.

Again, have a wonderful New Year's Eve! I will be back tomorrow kicking off the New Year with the new Paper Sweeties Inspirational Challenge.
