The CTMH cardstock has a white core. After I ran the blue through the Cuttlebug in embossing folders, I lightly sanded the embossed surface. This exposed the white core beneath the color. I like the effect. Of course, I had to add some bling! I went for two different colors of Stickles and some Bella's dots. (For a list of supplies, click here.)
As I strolled through The Boston Garden last weekend (see the following post), I was reminded of the pleasure to be found in simple things: duck families, cherry blossom trees, the sounds of birds singing and of children laughing, the joy that the scent of a single flower can bring, the simplicity of the startling beauty of a tulip. May you take a moment or two today to enjoy one of life's simpler things.
