A friend...

Over at Splitcoast today...words of encouragement.

This card is a standard A2 (4.25" x 5.5") in SU's Basic Black, followed by a layer of designer paper that's been distressed and inked. Next is a die cut in Basic Black, followed by the sentiment panel from the same pack of designer papers that's also been inked. A couple more die cuts over top of the sentiment panel and a couple of large pearls for embellies. The sentiment panel has been popped up on dimensionals. The hand dyed ribbon is placed between the black die cut and sentiment panel. I glued the knots down to the background paper and then glued two smaller pearls over top of the knots.

This is one of those cards where the paper does a lot of the work...makes it easy peasy!
