Be Who You Are

This morning after making my Mojo Monday card, I found Stacey's Jewelry Color Inspiration challenge.
Isn't the necklace adorable? Made from a Scrabble tile I believe. I always love the jewelry she picks out, but I never have the colors, or anything close. I thought the same thing today, but discovered I had all but Kiwi Kiss. So I dug out a Making Memories rub on that was close and the polka dot ribbon has been lying around waiting for a good home. I didn't have ink for any of the colors so I just worked with my Sizzix and rub-ons.

This card will go to my husband's cousin in college. She's an education major, like I was, and I remember the winter of junior year being especially difficult. Everyone in my family probably remembers that just a pick-me-up for Kaitlin incase college life isn't all fun and parties!


  1. Your card is so pretty, Caryl! I love the die cut & layered flower embellishment. This will surely make Kaitlyn smile:) Thanks for playing in the Jewelry Color Inspiration #25!

  2. I like the coordinating embossing on the background and the die cut flower.

  3. Love the scrabble tile, I have this on my to-do list. I want to create some scrabble tiles for a Marilyn Monroe bracelet for my daughter.

    Love how you chose your color scheme..I am going to have to do this!!

    Your card is just beautiful!! Love it!!

  4. I definitely remember that year! Yikes! Those midnight calls were not fun but it was part of God's plan and all turned out for the best. Sounds like Paul is having a similar year so send him a card.


  5. WOW both of these are FANTASTIC
