A Simple Statement That Means A Lot

Sometimes I find that simple statements have the most impact. I tend to talk a lot, have lots of layers and "stuff" on my cards, and am in rush to do everything I want to accomplish. This card is the antithesis of all of that.
A simple statement, few layers, and a big impact!


My images are from Patriotic Icons by Sparkle N Sprinkle. Both are stamped in Night of Navy ink. The patterned paper is adorned with Cerise Glitter and Blue Lightning Glitter. I adhered two strips of 1/2" Tear-ific Tape (LOVE LOVE this stuff!) and then spooned my two colors of glitter on and pressed it into the tape. Easy peasy and sparkly fun!


Hope you had a great weekend!
