365 Cards - Day 199 - I believe in you

Welcome to another wonderful Wednesday at 365 Cards! Today's challenge is a bit sentimental as Pam wants to see "a card of hope and encouragement and include a poem or quotation that reinforces that." Well, I had these fabulous DRS Design stamps to play with so I just had a to find a quote I liked to reinforce the quotation...and leave it to Winnie-the-Pooh to have the answer for me. I love that bear!!

Actually this is a quote from Christopher Robin to Pooh but I think it fits so many situations. I went a little bit bold on the style of this card, but it's always fun to push one's personal boundaries! I colored the stem, leaves and butterflies on the main image in gray tones as I wanted the pink flower and sentiment butterflies to pop (whadda think mom? got enough butterflies on this one?!?) Here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:


1. CardPatterns - Sketch
2. Drunken Stampers - going round and round (use circles)
3. Etsy inspired challenge - Handmade Whimsy shop: I was inspired by this sachet
4. Fairy Fun Fridays - embossing wet or dry: I've got both on here...the butterflies are wet embossed and the main image panel is dry embossed on the edge
5. Flutter By Wednesday's - pink + butterfly, fairy or angel: I missed this one but I was still inspired by it!
6. Frosted Designs - use a quote
7. Paper Pretties - brads/eyelets: hard to see but I have heart brads in the lower right corner
8. Pixie Dust Studio Challenge - In between the newsprint (use black/white + one other color)
9. Simple Doodles - Spots and Dots
10. The Townscrapper - 1 cardstock color, 2 patterned paper, 3 types of embellishments, 1 stamped image, 2 ribbons
11. Totally Paper Crafts - let's go dotty

Thanks again for stopping by and can't wait to see what quote/sentiment you use for encouragement!
Aloha,

Awe Kimmy - you can never have enough butterflies! But your card is perfect with just the right number! First, that quote is the best for anyone needing encouragment, being a Pooh fan has been good for you! Love the black/white with pink colors, it really is such an elegant card. Love the boldness of it. The design and quote match perfectly.
Haave a good day, Love, SAM aka MOM
