......and the shadows will fall behind you. That is such a beautiful sentiment. This week I am playing along with the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger, and here this weeks inspiration picture:
I chose the colors, and wood grain as the inspiration for my card this week. If you follow my blog than you already know I love wood grain, so playing along with this weeks challenge was a no brainer
First I stamped the text background in A|S Pebble ink using the PTI set Background Basics Text. Next I
stamped the sentiment from the PTI set "Faith and Hope" in SU Early Espresso ink. I added a line of machine stitching and distressed the top edge with my SU edge distresser. I added a punched border from the SU Ribbon Scallop punch. The wood grain background was created with paper from the "Core Impressions: Cosmo Cricket Collection" that I picked up just yesterday at one of my favorite places to buy crafting supplies, Hobby Lobby! I sanded the embossed wood grain to reveal the sandy brown core. I SO love this paper! The wood grain butterfly was created using the A Muse Studio Wood Grain background stamp, A|S Cherry card stock, and A|S Cherry pigment ink. Next I ran the paper through my Cuttlebug using the A|S Butterfly metal die collection. I added two brown rhinestones from The Paper Studio. I finished off my card with a French Roast button from A|S tied with twine. I am so happy with the way my card turned out, and I love the shadow that I was able to capture while taking a picture of my card this evening, seems fitting doesn't it? Today I am also playing along with this weeks CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC26 using this sketch:
