Some People Strengthen Others

Hello and welcome to the March Words 2 Craft By Challenge. Our inspiration word quote is "All the best heroes are ordinary people who make themselves extraordinary." Gerard Way. My card completely embodies that sentiment with a simple statement, so I chose to keep it simple and let the sentiment be the star. I chose some pretty vintage rose patterned paper from Authentique's 6x6 Essentials Collection paper pad and cut a rectangle out of the center. I adhered the panel down to my white A2 card base and then stamped the sentiment from the Stampabilities Some People stamp set directly onto the cardstock using my Mini Misti for good placement and ink coverage. Using my Copic markers I highlighted some of the words to match the paper and then added some shimmer using my Spectrum Noir clear shimmer pen. To finish my card I added some clear rhinestones from Recollections, a pink satin bow from my ribbon collection, and some dashed black lines around the outside of the card using my Memento tuxedo black dual tip marker.

This is lovely Celeste and reminds me of my late sister-in-law. I remember her buying this paper on a trip to Archivers. Thanks for giving me a sweet memory today!

Celeste, This is so pretty! I love the way you've made your sentiment the focus point, and how clever of you to add a touch of color to the words. Thanks for hanging with us while we were making sure your card was showing up in the post. Hugs!!!
