That background paper is awesome and my first thought was you had created a mosaic background to enhance your beautiful art work. The knotted rope is the perfect touch.

Traci S. said...

Wow! Dawn, I thought that you put tile on those small colored areas at the top of the paper! I wouldn't put it past you! But, the time involved...I'm glad it is paper. I LOVE this quote. It is fabulous! Your coloring is...of course fantastic and incredible! I think the use of twine or rope is perfect.

He IS Able,
Traci S.

What a pretty background, like a mosaic. And I like your placement of the sentiment. I was creating a card earlier this evening that was giving me fits, I wish I'd come here before I'd finished, I would have known where to put the sentiment on mine. :)
