Words of Encouragement

My weekly card for my friend with a little humor and words of encouragement on them. 

The card design is based on the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  Of course I moved my ribbon to the other side of the panel and used the bow as the circle elements.  Sometimes you just have to be a rebel.

The stamp is one I have had for years.  It is by American Art Stamp.  I stamped it with Colorbox Chalk Ink (Dark Brown) and just colored a couple items with Copics.  I used paper from Basic Grey's 6 x 6 pad Kissing Booth - pinks and browns are always a lovely combination - love the houndstooth. 

Thanks for stopping by - I think I may indulge in some paper therapy today - it has been months.  Have a wonderful day and I hope you get to spend a little time being creative.
