You Never Know How Strong You Are!

Good morning!  Sherry here today and I have a very clean and somewhat simple card to share with you using Quietfire Design You Never Know How Strong You Are (which now comes cling mounted).

I used watercolor paper for the background, misting it with water and embossing with 3D embossing folder, Tiger Lilies.  I love the detail achieved when embossing watercolor paper when it’s damp.  When dry, the embossing holds and doesn’t flatten out if you need to trim the edges or anything.

The sentiment was stamped in gray ink and then die cut/embossed with ovals.  I used a gray cardstock along with the watercolor paper and added a sea foam grosgrain ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by and joining me today!
