JustRite Friday Challenge #082: Be Supportive

For the current JustRite Friday Challenge we are to 'be supportive'. I chose to use this gorgeous Bo Bunny "Gabrielle Collection" paper featuring an angel. When I chose it I was planning to make a sympathy card, but my focus changed. This has has been an extremely emotional and hectic week for us, as our DD and her loving BF announced their engagement -- to say I'm thrilled, so proud and so excited is putting it mildly!!!
Thus, I kept this card pretty simple as my week has flown by while anticipating the announcement and having difficulty concentrating on much else! My supportive sentiment is from the FABULOUS new JustRite Amazing Paper Grace "Just the Right Words' clear stamp set -- LOVE this and have wanted a set like this for a long time now! As you'll see if you check out this set, there are so many ways to make it 'your own' -- LOVE that!
My sentiment is stamped onto another new JustRite FAV of mine, their Antique Labels One Dies -- just a huge fan of this shape! I used some Smooch Spritz Pralines and Cream mist on my white doily to antique it, as well as on my sentiment while it was still in the die. Next I hand died my Hug Snug seam binding with Copics, tied my bow, added a Tim Holtz button and a small beaded angel stick pin and pearls to complete my card.
Hope you are able to join us next week @ JustRite's Friday Challenge and that my life slows down just enough that I can get my project done earlier, but I'm not holding my breath on that one -- LOL!  It's a wonderful thing though to be 'happily busy'!!!  ;~)
