I hope you enjoy the card I made today! Sorta makes you crave chocolate, doesn't it? Oh wait...that's just me...everything makes me crave chocolate.
I don't know about anyone else - but sometimes embossing stresses me out. If it's just a small stamped image, then I don't get flustered. But, when it is a large image like this one, I think it is kinda tricky. Maybe it is just me!
The sentiment stamp is from Hobby Lobby. I was there the other day, and I saw this stamp and just had to get it. The sentiment made me think of my friend, Lori. She is also adopting from Russia, and we have been through a lot together. The process is so hard...that sometimes you "forget the words"...
I made one card in chocolate, and one in burgundy. I haven't decided which shade to send to her yet.
The idea for this card came from Mary Fish! I found her blog the other day, and borrowed the layout and colors from her. I did change the stamped image in the top layer, and the style of ribbon.
