~ You Have Blessed My Life ~

There are so many wonderful people who have impacted my life.  There was a dear great aunt who took it upon herself to encourage me spiritually and educationally as a young girl.  There were teachers who pushed me to excel.  And naturally, my parents, who took great pains to teach a young girl the value of hard work and discipline.  If you stop and take inventory, I bet you can name quite a few people who helped you become who you are!  It is so very important to tell those special folks thank you.  Many of those who have impacted my life have already passed on.  Yet, there are those around me each and every day who continue to bless me.  And this card will go to one of those very special people.
 
 
I used a black card stock base with a white mat layer.  The DP (from Our Daily Bread Designs' Chalkboard Collection was cut to size and used for my base.  The lace trim is actually part of the DP!  I added a white die cut layer (Antique Labels & Border Dies) and sentiment (also from the Chalkboard Collection) cut with Vintage Labels Die.  I added some greenery created with the Fancy Foliage Die and blossoms created with the Ornamental Crosses Die.  A few strategically placed adhesive pearls adorn the faux lace and blossom centers.  Very simple indeed!  I hope she likes it!
