It will be ok ....

... Hi - just a quick post today with a card for a few challenges:


Stamps: CAS-ual Friday Stamps - Breath
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Pacific Point, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie
Dies: Spellbinders - Rectangles Lg (S4-132) #5; Simon Says Stamp! - Sayings Banner
Accessories: White Lustre Card

 

The restriction on the LIM sketch is that it must remain in the same orientation and for a while I couldn't think what to do.  But then I had a light bulb moment :)  I cut the rectangular panel with my Spellbinder die and then stamped this fab flourish in bold colours.  I die cut the banner from matching white card and simply stamped the sentiment in the centre.  I attached the coloured panel with dimensional tape and simply glued the banner in place.

I like the colours - bold, bright and not too feminine, which is good, as this is going off to my son Ben.  He's having a bit of a time of it - as teenage boys do.  And this will be to remind him that I'm here for him and will love him whatever!

At long last it seems that spring has arrived in Michigan - we've had some wonderful days and this weekend looks like it'll be rather nice too.  Which is a good thing, as we're heading off to a tulip display tomorrow!  Check back later to see the photos!  Bye for now.
