I can't put Verve's newly released Good Work set down!  So many uplifting verses and the images Wonderful too.  I chose this fabulous Romans 12:12 verse for my card, stamped the flourish and used a white gel pen to highlight it to tie in the white on the kraft tag.  A doily girlied things up a bit, and a  few butterflies and buttons added extra pops of colour.  Best part is the tag can be removed and used as a bookmark if you so choose.

Carry on picking up and inking up these uplifting sentiments, because you're creating stellar cards with them. The purple-pink-green combination is stellar with the kraft; each colour has more impact paired with the others. Soooo pretty!
