Hey ya'll. Happy Tuesday! I hope you're having a great day and week. My day started off spectacularly and now it continues with this card I've got for you. I am so excited about this card! I hope you will be too. :)
I got this new set Forever With You on pre-order before the catalog went live last week and I've already posted another card (totally different) from it. I wasn't quite sure how I was going to use the large sentiment in the set, but I loved the message of the set so went ahead and purchased it, on faith that I would fine plenty of uses. I have to say I already love the set and I love how this card turned out using the large sentiment.
Here's today's card-

Can I just say I Love, Love, Love this card! Oh! I hope you do too.
My inspiration/jumping off point was with this sketch from the fine ladies over at Sketch Frenzy Friday-
I took a little liberty with it and added an extra flourish to the left side to balance my card out. Otherwise though I think it's pretty true to the intent of the sketch.
I know some people think I let Tink have her way too often. Personally, I think that's hard to do. I didn't actually plan on the sparkle for this card. I was quite happy with it like this-
But, I really think the sparkle made it extra special. I started with a base of Pool Party for my Z-Fold and stamped the Forever sentiment in Island Indigo on Very Vanilla cardstock and matted it with a piece of Island Indigo. The interior piece is Very Vanilla as well. I inked the flourish in Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade and then stamped off once to get the muted design. Originally I had just the right side like the sketch and it looked ok, but I decided to add the one to the left side so it would "frame" my sentiment. A little Two-Way Glue Pen and some Dazzling Diamonds to just the flowers and they sparkle like dew drops in the moonlight. :)
Here's the inside-
I inked up my stamp with my Island Indigo Stampin Write Marker, stamped off once and then inked up the word "Wherever" again so it would stand out and stamped it. So easy. I also love that without the flowers around this sentiment inked up, it seems like a totally different stamp. Love it! So versatile.
Here's what the card looks like opened up-
