I wanted to use this great quote from Mary Brainard on my card after I read the very inspiring challenge post at Word Art Wednesday. We've all had those "down in the dumps" kind of days or even worse when those days stretch out into weeks (or even longer!). I'm also playing along with Cute Card Thursday where the theme is distressing, Simon Says Stamp's anything goes challenge, and Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light #117 which is a sketch challenge.
Here's the sketch.
I zigzagged around the two panels, distressed the edges, and then sponged them. The sentiment panel was made using the cracked glass technique which can be found here at Splitcoaststampers. I used regular clear embossing power and just used several layers of it to get the thickness needed before freezing.
