Cherish (and thank you for your responses)


Die cut a paper mask with MFT striped die and added gold speckles through the stripes in the mask. 

Painted red stripes right on 80# Neenah Solar White.

Then I just went bananas and die cut the word cherish (from a Pinkfresh Studio kit) and then die cut the heart (from Essentials by Ellen Folk Heart dies -- addicted to those dies).  Die cut both 3 more times and stacked and adhered with Tombow Mono Multi glue (a big mess, will try another adhesive in the future!)  Made sure the "heart" was die cut with some gold foil cardstock scrap in my stash.

MOOD WHEN DONE = Cheerful. 


Thanks for responding to yesterday's question. I read every response.  I need to use my common sense and take the time to acknowledge influences when in my heart I know that it is the right thing to do.  It reminds me of former Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart, who, in 1964 famously said about pornography, "I know it when I see it."

Oops, I just bought some of that glue but haven't tried it yet. Love how this turned out. Bright and cheerful. You're so good with the speckles.
