Embrace Moments...

I really loved this image - and, if I remember right, a friend let me stamp it once to use.  I have no source for it - if anyone knows please leave me a message!  
I used Sepia ink, mounted it on a dark brown CS, wrapped it with dark brown cord tied with a square knot [note the half circles punched on the sides to lock the twine in place.]  Finally, that bundle was elevated on foam and attached to the white base card. 
For the inside I used two separate words from pre-inked stamps called Mini-Words  A fishtail cut to both ends of the strip and it was elevated in the middle on foam with the ends glued flat - creating a gently curved sentiment on the brown mat.

Makes a great man card for almost any occasion - I used this one for a sympathy card for a woman I felt was in this space after her husband passed.  She felt it  was "perfect for her situation".  I'm really glad - so hard to find the right words.
