Reap The Joys Of Today

Every day has its own set of joys, doesn't it? That's one reason I adore this sentiment from Clear Artistic Stamps and I find myself coming back to it again and again. It's just a good reminder :) My card below is very simple and came together easily using Shadows Of Memories, from the beautiful Serenity line. I stamped the main image with pretty in pink, then rock-n-rolled rich cocoa around it for a two-tone effect. I dry embossed the brown base with a floral pattern. The corners were punched from Chatterbox (Rosey Powder Puffs) designer paper with my photo corner scallop punch. I sponged lightly around the image with pretty in pink and I slid my rich cocoa Memento ink pad along each edge of every layer for added depth.
