It is time for another fun challenge at Sentimental Sundays and my first as a design team member!! This week's challenge is to create a card for a "New Beginning" that uses a sentiment/quote.
Since there are so many different types of 'New Beginnings' I thought I would use this Thoreau quote from Cornish Heritage Farms' Motivational Centers for the focal point of my card. This card could be for a graduate, a friend who is starting a new job, a family member who is returning to school or someone who is embarking on a new path in life.
The layout for this card came from Kazan's Sketch #52 at the 2 Sketches 4 You blog. I thought this layout kept the focus on the sentiment, but I was also able to add some strips of patterned paper. The paper piercing was done freehand around the die-cut sentiment.
Make sure to stop by the Sentimental Sundays post to see what the other artists did for this great challenge and to download the FREE New Beginnings Sentiment set that Ann created!!
