I was getting overwhelmed by the videos and images coming out of Japan in the wake of the earthquake and subsequent tsunami...So I decided a little crafting therapy was in order. :) I, of course, broke out my Pagoda cricut cartridge and thus this card was born. I used the Vintage Wallpaper background stamp from MarketStreetStamps.com to create my golden patterned paper. I stamped with distress embossing ink and pounced on perfect pearls in the perfect gold color. Super shiny and pretty in real life!
I used the textile cuttlebug folder for the black piece behind my image. The sentiment is from the Sympathy set from PinkByDesign. I think this set is out of stock, but keep checking. ;)
So thankful to be safe and sound. Praying for all of those who aren't.
