VLV December Sketch: Keep Shining

Happy Sunday!  I am the first one up and ready for church, so I hope complete a post of a card I finished last night.  It features the "best sections" of several sheets from a collection called Patisserie.  It was fun to slice off the floral border of one sheet, to use the solid section of another, and to cut a central panel into a circle.

This is a graduation card for an amazing young woman who received her college degree a couple weeks ago and is currently celebrating in France with her family.  I wanted her card to have a Parisian flair, and the "Keep Shining" sentiment is perfect for this confident, talented young lady.

Stamps include:  Verve's Rise Above (sentiment), Verve's Joyful Blooms with matching dies, and French Flea Market by Julie Nutting.

I hope my Mojo is on it's way back home.  It would be even better if it brought my missing Tim Holtz  snips back, too.  I cleaned up after a scrapbooking frenzy (right) before our holiday travels, and my dear red-handled scissors are nowhere to be found.  The LSS had none, and the substitutes are just not as good.  Hope to find them soon!

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a blessed day and a wonderful New Year,
