"Life is Short"

Back again with a special card I made for a friend of mine.  Do you ever see a sentiment or poem and you automatically think of that certain person who it would be perfect for.....That's how I felt when I saw this wonderful sentiment from Ginger House....

I started with a scalloped white card base and used a "Daisy Ribbon Mat" from Bird's Cards which I cut using my Cameo.  I used a light pink card stock for the background and ran pink ribbon through the mat. I then made a bow with some sheer pink ribbon. I am not happy with the bow but this was the only pink ribbon I had at the time. I added a white/gold antique button in the middle of the bow. I did finished the inside but did not take a pic of it since I had already included some personal words.

I am entering my card in the following Challenges:
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my card today. Your comments are always welcomed. Hope everyone has a great weekend..

Sassy Raggedy aka Joann
