Smile



It is time for another encouragement challenge at Calling All Sistahs
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 create my encouragement card I started with a white top folding card base and a piece of Bristol paper cut down with a scalloped stitched die. To create my background using the inspiration colors I used some distress oxide inks in Candied Apple, Abandoned Coral, Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade. After I achieved the look I wanted then I spritzed the background with water and then added the greeting from the Sassy Smiles set. I used the die cut Smile from the Smiling Fri-dies and cut it out of white paper several times adhered them together and added it to the card above the greeting.
