I saw this phrase somewhere on a blog or Splitcoast and
immediately had to make up several versions in
Paint Shop Pro X.
It is so perfect for so many different occasions.
I began the design with a white card base.
The corners were rounded the edges heavily sponged
with Adirondack Stream dye ink.
The remainder of the ink left on the sponge
was swished over the entire card face.
Using a Paper Studio paper called Antique Brocade
and Spellbinder Cardmaker die a frame was cut.
The phrase was cut with a straight edge
with the edges sponged with the Adirondack Stream ink.
I used the flat pieces of paper egg cartons
on the back of the phrase to create a 3-d effect.
A McGill punch is used for the white and blue branches.
The blue branches are just white ones that were
sponged with the Adirondack Stream ink.
Flowers are from Punch Bunch punches
with the edges again sponged with the Stream ink.
I used a stylus to shape the punched flowers.
The centers of the flowers are blue green glitter glue.
The flowers are arranged over the branches
with pearls scattered about.
