Tuesday Evening

Hello everyone, how's your Tuesday going? It's always busy after a 3-day weekend, but that's ok, keeps life interesting. I made this card for a coworker who is going through some very tough times. When you see others struggling with life's ups and downs, it makes you realize how fragile life really is and to appreciate what we have in our lives for however long we are here on this Earth. These cards can be a struggle at times, but this one came together pretty quickly. Maybe because it's so simple. The hardest part was distressing the bottom layer. I used a very dull pair of scissors, which worked well, but makes me feel like I'm scratching my nails on a chalkboard. Guess I should look into one of those distressing tools! ;) I used Stampin' Up and Bazzil cardstock, and a piece of patterned paper that I bought as a single sheet from JoAnn's and the sentiment stamps are from Pink By Design. And the ribbon is from Michael's. I hope you have a great evening, and I thank you for stopping by.
