A Glimmer of Hope

I love this lamp image...I think it's so elegant.

I love this verse even more-a glimmer of hope and a reminder of Who's in charge.

I folded this Making Memories DP in half and used it as a cardbase...

I was excited to use it!

The strip of paper with the sentiment has a notch that was created with a circle punch.

My Ellison Rays Embossing folder was used on the yellow/mustard oval for texture.

I think what took the longest, was "balancing" everything.  I moved it constantly until it "looked right".

It looks right to me, anyway. ;)

PlayDate Cafe PDCC 98 has some soothing colors this week.

Thank you for stopping by. ;)

  3. I love that button, too, as Savannah said, especially with the little bit of a string bow. Reminds me of a fancy lamp pull! And that *is* a beautiful lamp, Marlena. Thanks so much for playing with us at The Play Date Cafe this week!
