Paper Sundaes Week 19 Written Inspiration



This week at Paper Sundaes we are asked to create something insipired by one of our favorite book, poem or fairytale!! I chose The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams. Years ago, when I was in University and then teaching, I often judged UIL events for local schools for the Oral Interpretation events. I have to admit I grew a bit weary of hearing this story performed.. it was one that was in heavy rotation by a lot of elementary and junior high schools then,,, but now since time has passed, I find the story to be endearing and meaningful!

I used some of Basic Grey's new line Capella for this card.. love this collection!

Details:
Image by Spesch Designs digital stamp
Colored with copics
SU cardstock
Misc lace and pearls
Prima flowers
Distress ink on quote inside card
EK success border punch
MS leaf punch
