This week's Inspiration Challenge (IC630) at Splitcoaststampers is Cost Plus World Market. I selected about eight photos which I thought might be my inspiration but then I found this wall decor. Life does not have to be perfect to be beautiful.
I don't have a stamp set with that sentiment but I do have the Dents and Scratches kit by Unity Stamp Co.
I don't think anyone gets to a half a century plus a few years without receiving a few dents and scratches! This kit means even more to me this year as I am recovering from an auto accident.
My plan was to keep my card super simple and just place the sentiment on a tag to mimic the wall decor photo but then I remembered the beautiful I Will Never Leave You kit by Phyllis Harris (also from Unity Stamp Co.) and I just had to see how they would look together. In keeping with the photo inspiration, I kept as much uncolored space as I could with just a bit of color.
I hope that 2018 has fewer dents and scratches but if not we can rest in the hope that those dents and scratches can be made beautiful.
