Queen Mary said...

I think your card is reminiscent of an earlier time -- it works perfectly with this quote, which also works perfectly form someone who has recently lost her job! Or even as a condolence card!

Deborah said...

I love the vintage look to this card, and I really like the quote. I'd never heard it before, shades of Jeremiah 29:11. The font is especially appropriate to the weight of the words.

Hi Dawn~

This is stunning! I love this quote. It is full of such wisdom. It looks as if it were made of stone to me...like a monument. It is beautiful. I love the vintage additions like the distressing to the paper edges. And, the flowers and leaves are just amazing! The ribbon is such a nice compliment to them. And, the lattice and fleur de lis piece adds an extra touch of beauty to this piece!
