I loooooved this new Plain Jane (Beautiful PJ) the moment I set eyes on it! It reminds me so much of my daughter! With everything that she's gone through - and all that she has still ahead of her - she gets discouraged. She sees a leg and arm that doesn't work like it should (yet) and a large patch of hair that is only a couple of inches long (where it has grown after they shaved it). When I look at her, I see one of the bravest people I have ever known! I see her smile that still lights up a room! I see an absolutely beautiful young woman, both inside and out! I tell her this often...and plan to keep on telling her! So, I will find many different ways to use this Plain Jane on cards, bookmarks, and gifts for her! :-)
I used the Classy Label die to frame the sentiment, and tucked a heart border (made using one of the new border dies from the Scalloped Trim Trio die set) underneath it. Oh, and that pretty aqua seam binding...also from Verve! It's from the new Signature Series Seam Binding set!
My second card is the one that I made for this week's Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge! (February Week # 4). Janelle is the hostess for this week's clean and simple sketch!
I used the new Starry Die to cut out lots of stars and then backed it with some patterned paper. The focal image is a sentiment from the new Shining Star set! I created the little banners using the Flag It Die Set!
