Backwards and Forwards



Ash Wednesday is a good day for looking backwards and forwards. I won't get all weird here, and the card I made isn't an "Ash Wednesday" card (good grief, I hope there isn't a card category like Happy...well you get the idea!). No, it's really a thank you card for my friend, college classmate, and former coworker, Mary. She's brilliant. She's nice. She's the kind of person everyone wants in their life. And I have so much to thank her for. This little card is a small start. Looking back, so many wonderful memories, looking forward, so many more to make!

And I got the idea over at Muse. This is the current inspiration photo:

and I went with the colors, and basic straight-line design. 



IRL, the colors are bright, not garish, just bright. (gotta get a real camera). I used SU white cardstock and black ink. MS green, (excuse me..) peridot glitter. Eyeglass stamp from TAWS Adorabowl set, and the sentiment is from Hampton Art by KI. Bazzill purple and random green cardstock. I have to say glittering was fun. I got a phone call right in the middle of gluing, yet still managed to glue, glitter, AND talk on the phone all at the same time. Now there's a feat!
