Keep Your Chin Up

    The card I'm sharing today is made with all my East Texas and Florida friends in mind.  I thought they all could do with a bit of humor in their lives right now.  :-D  We're praying for all of you every day and acknowledge you for your strength and bravery in the face of horrendous hurricanes.

I did my best to use all the colors from

     I colored this image (Bugaboo Stamps) with my ProMarkers, then cut it with a Gina Marie Designs die.  I found the plaid dp in my stash and used it for the full background.  I wrapped a strip of gray-blue lace around it before adhering it to the card front.

     I had a scrap of yellow leaves dp left over from an earlier project so matted it with dark gray CS and layered it onto the card front.  Next came the image piece, two strips of orange dp and the sentiment.  The final touch was the bow, dyed golden orange with a marker.
