Heureux Day


I hope you all had a wonderful memorial day weekend. It's amazing how much our nation has gone through in order to keep the freedoms we so much enjoy.

Today I want to share a card I created for the Embellish Text Challenge. Lately I've been experimenting with my very own handwriting. It can be a bit intimidating because of all the wonderful fonts out there. But still there's nothing like a handwritten detail. This card has just that a tiny detail. I stamped the sentiment using Cavallini Papers & Co. alphabet stamps and then wrote the word "heureux" which means happy in french with zig millennium pen 01. 

Here's the complete card. I thought of adding some embellishments but then decided to allow the sentiment to be the focal point of this card.

Over all it's a simple, fun and easy card to create. Thanks for coming by. I'm off to enjoy the sun :) 

Heureux day!!

If I had handwriting like yours, I'd never download another font! Great card!
