I have been humming Amy Grant's song all day after making this card - though I am dating myself by mentioning this song LOL!  Pulled out my dwindling The Sweetest Thing MME paper pad to use up some scraps, and paired it with a tweaked version of a Deconstructed Sketch to create this card. Was a very masculine card initially, so I dressed it up a bit with the pearls and punched daisy chain.

Good morning Marisa! So sorry I am late commenting on your wonderful cards and tags. I am sitting here with my coffee so amazed at your work (as always). I just love how you mix papers and colors and make your cards speak from so many different levels. The black reverse arrow strip is a good example - it totally draws the eye to the wonderful sentiment. You are so talented and this card is very special. Hugz
