Hello Friends! I am so excited to be participating in Papertrey Ink's February Blog Hop:
I started by embossing Heather's beautiful "Rustic Wreath" image stamp onto a black card stock square using Stampendous Jewel Gold Embossing Powder.
I then embossed this wonderful Kindness sentiment and sunshine image from one of my very favorite sentiment sets "Choose Joy" in the center of the wreath image.
I have to say that I love these images together and may have to make several more of these cards to have on hand and share. I truly feel that kindness is universally the most important language we all share each day! And it is one of my "Mom-isms" that is said to my son as he gets out of the car each morning at school: "Remember to smile and be kind! They are your biggest gifts to the world each day!".
Thanks for taking a look at my card! I am so happy I got one made! Yay for Mid-Winter break! Off to see what everyone else created!
This is just so lovely. Feminine with lovely texture from the gold embossing. Great job. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete

Lovely, lovely card Jill! That wreath looks FABULOUS embossed in gold against the dark background, and your sentiment from Choose Joy is just perfect inside the wreath! Love that DSP too! Stunning card!! :0)ReplyDelete

I woke up to snow today!
Send some snow our way! We didn't get any so far and Tim wants a snow day to extend midwinter break! Lol!!!Delete
Beautiful sentiment, JIll! Love the floral paper and the color you added to the wreath!ReplyDelete
Your card is simply stunning. Great job on the embossing and I must say that your background paper is one of the prettiest I have ever seen. Would love to know the full name of the paper pack if you do not mind. Cheers.ReplyDelete
Hi Melanie - The paper pad is by Tilda and is called "Tiny Treasures". The cover is in a blue-gray shade with teacups and a bunny and kitty both with wings on it. Hope you can find it - I believe it is retired. It has many wonderful tiny florals and polka dots in the same colors as the cover.Delete
EEk! I love the way that Choose Joy sentiment fits in the Rustic Wreath! Beautiful, Jill!ReplyDelete
Beautiful card! Love the gold embossing and the lovely sentiment.ReplyDelete
