Courage

Good Morning Paper Canteen Fans!  It was a busy weekend around here but I was able to squeeze in some crafty time to play with this week's MFT sketch challenge.  I pulled out my Vertical Greetings Stamp and Die-namics and some warm and rich colors in chocolate, vanilla and bright red.
I inked the majority of the greeting in SU! Chocolate Chip ink and the word 'courage' in Real Red.  I stitched one edge with red thread in a zig zag strip and added some rich deep pearls to the top and bottom of the greeting panel.  I backed it with kraft cardstock to make it pop from the card front. 
I inked the edges of my layers, added a strip of polka dotted Washi tape, some silver brads to anchor the corner and a blingy circle to make everything pop.  I used the fabulous Jumbo Monarch Border to cut red felt to add the border along the bottom. 

I finished my creation off with a fluffy, vanilla Grosgrain bow. 

Thanks for popping by today!!

Crafty Hugs!
