Make Life A Garden!

Hi everyone!! Happy Tuesday again!!

Here is my card for today's Color Challenge on SCS, CC241, Always Bravo Cameo, and also for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge, MTSC44!!

For my card, I used one of my FAVORITE There She Goes sets, Nature of Friendship! This set has the most beautiful silhouettes and I LOVE the quotes as well!!

For my card, I chose this GORGEOUS quote for my focal panel:

"To know someone here or there with whom you can feel there is understanding in spote of distances or thoughts expressed - that can make life a garden" - Goethe

I incorporated all four colors into my card today, and I must admit, I LOVE these colors together! I stamped the quote in Always Artichoke Ink onto Cameo Coral Cardstock and then cut it out with Oval Nestabilities. I then sponged Cameo Coral ink around the edges and stamped the leaves in Cameo Coral behind the sentiment.

The Always Artichoke panel has the same leaves stamped in Always Artichoke ink and then this panel was sponged as well. I pierced around the Always Artichoke panel as well as my oval focal panel, and added a double ribbon of Bravo Burgundy Grosgrain and Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon. I then finished this off with four Vanilla brads by American Crafts!!
