New Job

Good morning all!
A nice short post from me today!
The card I have to share with you, was a commisioned card. 
Oddly enough, I've had quite a few requests for New Job cards this 
month, I wonder, is it a sign that things are improving with the economy?
Here's what I came up with!

A simple little card in pink & white!
I created the sentiment on the PC then printed, cut out with a
Nesties Label die & inked with Spun Sugar Distress ink.
I used a white base then added two embossed panels which I inked,
then covered the join with a length of seam binding.

I added a separate hand tied quadruple bow.

Inside the card I added an inked panel & a little lucky black cat,
made with a Memory Box die.
Thanks for stopping by!
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
Paper Pretties - Hip To Be Square

  26. Oh, I really love the pink and white, Dawn! Wonderful embossing and the cat inside is so sweet. :-D Sorry to have been MIA for a while but I'm traveling a lot this summer and much of it will be without internet connection or craft supplies. I'll be around visiting all my favorites when I'm home but my commenting may be somewhat limited. I've been gone 10 days this trip and came back to over 1,000 blog reminders in my e-mail ! Good Heavens, how will I ever get through all those before I leave again in 5 days? Hugs, my friend.

  27. This is simply an exquisite card and that bow - SOOOOO beautifully tied!! Love it!!


Thank you for taking the time & trouble to comment! I truly appreciate your feedback!
