Walk Beside Me

There are times when I want to make "just because" cards that I can send to friends to brighten their day. I found this beautiful sentiment from I Brake for Stamps, and I wanted to make a feminine and sunny card with it.

I used some sunny Yellow Crepe Ruche paper and some Cryogen White (a yummy shimmery white cardstock) from Paper Temptress. The sentiment was stamped and die cut with an oval die, and I used the Wisped Frames technique. I added some flourishes that I die cut with the Cryogen White cardstock, and I added some flowers from I Brake for Stamps to embellish the lower right edge of the sentiment.

You can see the gorgeous shimmer of the Cryogen White cardstock here:

Why not make a "just because" card today and send it to a special friend? It's always fun to surprise people with some happy mail. :-)

Have a wonderful day!
