Card for a New Day!

Today's card is an encouraging one for any friend who is in recovery, especially within a Twelve Step program.

Cardstock:       Cocoa Bazzill Crisscross, Beckett Moonlight, Wausau Firecracker Red*, generic    Chocolate  Brown background embossed with Tim’s Damask folder 
Stamps:           Hero’s ‘Today is a new day’, Rubber Stampede’s Crackled Background, Rubber Mania’s Twig Spray            
Inks:                Color Box Ruby, Cream White, Distress Brushed Corduroy, Ancient Page Leaf Green, White gel pen
Emb Powder:  Transcendence by Vippies **
Doo Dads:      Saddle stitched Cocoa/Chocolate grosgrain ribbon, berries embellished w/Red Stickles, Chocolate Brown twine, punched bird layered 4X and dotted with white gel pen,  Firecracker Red scrap arrow punched, stamped with Crackled Background and foam mounted lower left to cover boo boo***.

*A beautiful deep rich red that is no longer available.  The good stuff always tanks way too soon . . .
** Unbelievable how great this stuff is.  Lets any color of ink shine through, rarely clings where you don’t want it, and always leaves a slightly dimpled texture that is way more cool than boring perfection.
*** LOVE the total forgiveness that rubber stamping offers – almost any witless mistake can be morphed into something attractive.
