Let Your Soul and Spirit Fly

Goodness, doesn't time fly when you're having fun? Here's a card I made for this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show... challenge, which is "a bit of brown".

"Let Your Soul and Spirit Fly"

I love the IndigoBlu stamp sets; all the stamps on this card are from IndigoBlu. The wording comes from a fabulous sheet of sentiment stamps titled "Discover Your Passion". They are all so original and different. "Let Your Soul & Spirit Fly" is stamped in Tumbled Glass Distress ink and heat-embossed in clear, then overinked in Walnut Stain. This panel is matted and layered onto hammered gold and pearlised pale blue cardstock, before adhering to the background. The background panel is decorated with Tumbled Glass ink, and overstamped and edged with Walnut Stain.

The diecuts are all cut from pearlised blue cardstock.
