enjoy the journey...

This month the Tattered Angels team got to work with some Pink Paislee goodies as well. I was excited! Even though I get to work with Pink Paislee all the time, I feel so comfortable with their products. The mix of shabbiness with color is right up my alley.
I had time to make a quick card yesterday. With my uncle passing from cancer last week and Kati's birthday party and babysitting, I've haven't had much time to think about scrapbooking. Actually I've been thinking a lot about life lately and what I want out of it. Deep stuff... :)

Anyway, back to the card... I created a matchbook card base and punched the edge of the flap for an added detail. I used the Cupid journaling card in the background, along with some Artisan tape! I wanted to try a new color combo. (well new to me) I thought the purples, grays and blues would be pretty.

The chipboard piece is Tattered Angels chipboard from the Tattered Traveler line. It's embossed and so neat. I sprayed it with Turquoise Blue Glimmer Mist and then sanded the raised portions. The "enjoy the journey" and the stars are stamps from the 365 Degrees line by Pink Paislee. I sprayed the seam binding with Silver Sugar Glimmer Mist, it's so soft and shiny in real life!

I was thinking you could use this sentiment with a graduation card, but maybe even a retirement card. My daughter has a teacher that is retiring this year and tomorrow is her going away party. I think I might give her this card. I'm sure she'll enjoy the journey of retirement!
That's it for me today....I'm off to my daughter's Field Day at school. She's running the hurdles today, so I'm equipped with my Flip and off we go! Have a good one,
Danielle

This matchbook style card is wonderful! I've got to it sometime! The various colors you used work so well together. Wow!

I'm o sorry to read about your uncle and it sounds like you've had a lot going on. Maybe you'll be able to slow down a little bit this summer. :) Big hugs to you!!
