Celebrate Life



I have a lot of birthday cards to make over the next couple of weeks. When I saw this fantastic quote about celebrating your life from Oprah Winfrey, I thought it would make a great birthday card. This sentiment was a free download from Raindrop Echo Designs for Whimsy Stamps.

If you like this sentiment, you also might want to check out Ann's new challenge blog, Sentimental Sundays. She has basic sentiments set which is available for free download.
.
I added the brownish pearls at the very end. I have been saving these, who knows for what, but now I actually used them on a project. I am challenging myself to continue to use all these "special" things that I have stashed. They aren't too special when they are sitting in their packaging where no one can enjoy them.

** Updated - I was in the super 6 for the Card Patterns Sketch #60

I hope you have a great day!

This is a terrific quote and you know what? It was INSIDE my Dove candy yesterday as one of their quotes!! How weird is that?
I ate two candies...and the other one said "Volunteer from your heart" and I had just left the Humane Society where I volunteer and a photographer that was taking pictures of me for a story that will run in our local paper!!! WOW - very weird coicidences going on!!!
Thank you for Jackie's blog adress too - I will go visit her now :)

What a great quote and I love how you made it the feature of the card - it deserves to be. Love how you layered the quote with the 3 different nesties - looks gorgeous. The colours have such a lovely, warm, vintage feel about them too. Congrats on being in the Super 6 at Card Patterns - well-deserved :-)
