Encouragement Card

Hi, Joyce here today with an encouragement card which is 5 X 7. I cut my background to fit the opening of the Sue Wilson Australian frame since I wanted to see the coral paper through the cutouts. 

The background is done using Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper and Distress inks and a brayer. I demo the technique in the beginning of this VIDEO

Just stamp your favorite sentiment in the center. I used from "His Love" Mama Elephant. Then add the frame and embellish with the Sue Wilson Ornamental Corners. I also added the corners and another part of the frame on the inside.
