Be The Change....


Just a super quick post for today! The weather's warmed up and it's a gorgeous fall day so I'm going out to enjoy it!

I've had this quote from Unity for quite a while now so it's about time that I use it...right?!? When I saw Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge, MTSC44, I thought it was a perfect opportunity. I definitely wanted something quick and simple and this fit the bill perfectly.

The sentiment is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa then cut out with oval Nestabilities. All the cardstock is from my August 20th Key Ingredients. I added buttons from my stash over each of the circles on the image and I think the longest part of this entire card was threading the buttons! LOL!!! The brown thread was already in my machine from the previous card I made so I went with it and stitched around the edges. Then I added some white brads and ribbon to brighten it up a little.

Thanks for stopping by!
