None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Imagine ....

“Life just doesn’t hand you things. You have to get out there and make things happen. That’s the exciting part.” ~ Emeril Lagasse 

Good morning!

Today is the start of a new color challenge at The Outlawz
Our Sponsor for the month of Septemner is Through the Craft Room Door with a one year subscription to the magazine.

This week we are using an inspiration photo ... 



Here is my card inspired by the above photo:
I see books and color.
For me, you can not have one without the other and books mean adventure into other worlds, times and lives.

I used various bold colors to sponge in the background which I cut to size and then topped with the die cut trees. 

The stars peeking through the branches were created with a White Gel pen then topped with a touch of Pearl Smooch. 


Supplies: Card size 5 x 7
Cardstock from The Paper Studio, Stampin Up! & Bazzill
White Gel Pen
Pearl Smooch
"Tree frame" die from Gina Marie Designs
Sentiments from The Angel Company "Dance with your Spirit" and "Explore"

Thanks so much for stopping by!
(Hugs) Cara

Oh simply stunning Cara! The simplicity of the design and the colors made this card fit for so many different occasion. Now you must list those background colors for me. They're so beautiful and I love their boldness. And wonderful use of the white gel pen too. It's amazing what beauty a little white gel pen can do to a card! Have a lovely rest of your day Cara. Hugs.

This is a really beautiful card. I like how it's "simple" but not plain at all. Idk if I'm making sense but I just love this.
