finding joy


 I have long admired this Emily Dickinson quote. In our world today, with it's pulls and holds, these words ring true. I knew I wanted to make the quote stand front and center.  I couldn't resist the tropical plaid ribbon and Basic Grey hot, hot colors.  I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder for more texture, along with Cornish Heritage Farms flowers and lace background. The sentiment is stamped on shimmer white paper using the Labels2 from Spellbinder.  I added an scalloped oval and a glossy black larger mat.  

The sketch is from 2 sketches 4 you.
