Hello and welcome...
Today's card is, again, a 5" x 7" white card base.  I cut a smaller piece of black card by Crafter's Companion and embossed it with the 'Bubble Explosion' E/F by Leonie Pujol.  This card embosses beautifully

Next, using an alphabet die set by Tattered Lace, I, and I have to say, laboriously, ran the dies through my Platinum machine by Spellbinders, numerous times, until I had the right number of gold and silver letters for the sentiment.  I used mirri card for this from my stash

I adhered the black card onto the base card and arranged and glued the letters to the bottom left of my card

To complete I added a verse and used my favourite Woodware corner punch on all 4 corners of the insert

I think my hand was shaking a little when photographing the verse as it is not so clear, it reads:

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted       
                                                       Aesop (620-560BC)

A very quick card to make, providing you have all the letters at the ready, I do have a large stash of multi coloured letters but none in silver or gold mirri.  I'll bear that in mind on a cold, wet day!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog, I hope my designs have given a little inspiration.
I read all your comments and really do appreciate you leaving me a message.
