You gotta believe . . .

I made this card for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge this week. I think I let a little wishful thinking influence my design. The temperature has been in the 70's for the past couple of days . . . I feel Spring is on its way!!! These papers and colors felt so energizing and uplifting, so I thought a wonderfully inspirational phrase should be the focal point . . .

I basically hand cut & paper pieced most of the card, then machine-stitched all over with different thread colors and decorative stitches. The quote is computer generated , and I used nestabilities for the scalloped circles. There is lots of pretty bling -thanks to some Stickles and rhinestones- although the photos don't show it too much.

Have a great day!
