Be Amazing

This month at Power Poppy, the very talented (and fit!) Cindy Lawrence challenges us to make "Happy Mail" for someone we'd like to "share the love" with - "just because" and for no reason at all!.  Well, I immediately thought of this great sentiment from the Power Poppy Orchids Rock stamp set.  I think we all need encouragement at times to remember how strong and  amazing we really are, just in living our everyday lives. I wanted to make this a bit different so I stamped the sentiment with Memento Luxe white ink onto vellum and embossed it with white embossing powder, tore along the top and bottom edges and attached it with yellow brads. The background paper is from the 6 x 6 paper pad Cambridge Court by My Mind's Eye layered onto yellow cardstock.  The image is the wonderful Power Poppy digi Dancing with Daffodils, coloured with copics, die cut with a Spellbinders Classic Oval and popped up on top of yellow cardstock die cut with a Spellbinders Lacy Oval die.

Copic Colours used were:  Y00, Y11, Y15, YG11, YG13, YG17, G43, G46, V12, V04, E41, E43, E44

Thanks so much for visiting!
