Calling All Sistahs - May Challenge

I saw this new challenge blog and love the idea of making an encouragement card.  The inspiration photo is so pretty
 

The colours are so beautiful and that was what inspired me.


I started by white embossing the Simon Says Stamp background stamp and then used Altenew Crisp inks in Desert Night, Ocean Waves, Lavender Fields and Sea Class to sponge.  The sentiment is embossed with Ranger Liquid Platinum powder onto vellum and die cut with a Simon Says Stamp stitched circle die.  I added some gold thread behind it.   

The idea behind this new challenge blog is awesome... you can read all about it Here

Thanks for stopping by.

Dawn, thank you for posting on StampNation and alerting me to the new Challenge to creating a card of encouragement. We all need encouragement and this is a wonderful idea. I seriously love the use of velum and gold embossing to create your sentiment and without it being a distraction. Beautiful.
