You Will Rise Above This...

Happy Friday, everyone!! Woo-hoo, the weekend is here!! I hope you have fun plans :) For the next couple of weeks, most of the posts on my blog will be Halloween-related, but I wanted to slip this card for a friend who is going through a hard time in before I start.


The base is a Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Rectangle, followed by a Grand Rectangle embossed with the Cuttlebug Plum Blossom embossing folder.


The ribbon is from May Arts, the button and hemp fiber from my stash. The inside red frame is a Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight.


A music background was stamped onto white cardstock with Antique Linen Distress Ink. The flower is a Tim Holtz Stamp, inked with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink. It was then cut out with a Spellbinders Labels Eight and inked with Tea Dye Distress Ink. The label is a Spellbinders Nested Pennant Die, the edges inked with Tea Dye. The sentiment, stamped in Aged Mahogany, is from K Andrew Designs Positive Thoughts stamp set:

  1. Crafty Friends Challenge #8 - Dry Embossing
  2. DL.Art Thankful Thursday Challenge - Sympathy or Get Well
  3. Simon Says Stamp - Dies or Punches
  4. Sunday Funday #2 - Linky Party

Like the wonderful layering of your card. Have used the same sentiment and it is perfect for someone going thru some tough times. Especially like the sheer ribbon & button used as well as the embossing for a wonderful red & white color combo.
