Truth Is....

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

here is the inspiration photo

To make my card, I started with a white top folding note card, a black panel and a watercolor paper panel cut down with a stitched die.
To make the background, I used Catherine Pooler inks and a craft mat. The colors I used were Rockin Red, Orange Twist and Tiara. I rubbed each ink pad directly on the craft mat and the spritzed with water, next I smooshed the watercolor paper directly on the wet ink and then dried it with a heat gun, I repeated this step several times until I achieved the look I wanted.
After the panel was completely dry I added the image and greeting from the Truth Is set by Cas-ual Fridays
