Live Simply

It's time for another encouragement challenge at Calling All Sistahs
Congratulations to the winner from last month. 
Our challenge is to use the inspiration photo below to create a card to send someone a word of encouragement as they go through a struggle. It doesn't have to be cancer it can be for someone who has lost someone, lost a job, or just needs a word of encouragement. The real challenge is will you mail it? I love to go to the mailbox and find happy mail instead of or with the bills, always makes my heart happy.
oh and 
There is a prize involved as well, a $25 voucher to CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and if you use CAS-ual Fridays products and are the winner it will increase to $50

To me this photo is serene and simple and along with the colors that is where I drew the inspiration for my card.
To make my card I started with a Crumb Cake top folding note card and a bristol paper panel cut down with a stitched die. I stamped the image from the Dream Then Do set with Versamark ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder. Next I blended some Broken China & Faded Jeans Distress Oxide inks over the image and spritzed with water. To finish the card I added some white enamel dots.


  1. Great way to make your sentiment take center stage! I love that soft and vibrant blue background you achieved. Thank you for being a part of the Encouragement Squad, Ceal!

  2. Love the water coloured background you created to make this wonderful sentiment stand out, Ceal! Cheers, Gwendolyn
