Encouragement



Here is a card I made awhile ago to encourage a friend who had lost a dear one.  This card was created by punching a circle and using it for a mask before stamping.  I applied some temporary adhesive to the circle and sponged on Distress Ink (Antique Linen) before stamping the Penny Black image (inclinations)
with Memento brown.  I removed the circle mask and stamped the sentiment.  The ribbon is brown but appears black in the photo. 
Busy weekend coming up.  Here's hoping you can find a few 'snippets' to enjoy your weekend.
Thanks so much for coming to take a look.
supplies:  Stamps: Penny Black, Printworks Distress ink, Memento ink
