Crazy Enough!

Sorry I have not been as blogging active as usual, but am working on a few things here and there and time just seems to get away! This is one of those quick and easy cards and the sentiment from Artistic Outpost's Chalkboard Wisdom is so perfect for encouraging someone to go forth and conquer!
I inked some manila with Broken China, Barn Door and Shabby Shutters and then the sentiment was stamped in black and clear embossed and then fussy cut.
The main card is a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, with each embossed section cut to 1 7/8 x 2 1/2 and highlighted with a darker shade of Distress. There you have it a quick card and inspiring sentiment. Which while on the subject of "Word," I will be linking this up to Inspiration Journal for their "Show It With Words" challenge.

Have a wonderful week and thank you for stopping by!
