A little Monday inspiration

I made this card with a different image in mind than I have used here. I coloured a sweet little spring image and when I placed it where it would go on this card, all I could think was, 'Eeewwww!!!' The base I like. The darling little spring girl image I like. The  image and base together, not so much.

I had to find a something to fit in the space I had for that girl. I pulled out Words of Wisdom and the flourish from Rescue Remedies Additions by Waltzingmouse Stamps to use in place of the image I had coloured.  It looks like I had planned it to be this way all along! For this bow, I layered up 2 ribbons; a cream satin and an iridescent, sheer antique gold twinkle. I really love the look since it gives the sheer ribbon more weight and presence on the card.

I dolled up the inside on this card. I'm stretching myself here, but I do like the end product and I am trying to do this more often as I have time.

Have a wonderful week, Friend!

Very beautiful, Loretta! Lovely sponging on the embossed layers. The layered frames of the sentiment is so bold and striking. I like how you've softened it up with the black lace and antique sheer ribbon. The double layered bow is so pretty. Great work, my friend!
