Staying calm...

Well, that's the feeling I got when I looked at the finished card.
I was trying to make a neutral card ( not overtly feminine or masculine) to put it in my " I may need this in an emergency situation" pile and decided to use Serendipity stamps, with neutral, muted colors.
Sort of like the end result :)


The sentiment is from Altenew. I had to improvise since I needed the sentiment in one line and it is actually arranged such that "Happy" is above the word "everything". Nothing that a bit of tape wouldn't cure :)
The medallion on the top is from a Christmas collection of sentiments - I think it is Just rite but I have to check ( old stamp - original packaging lost)


I really do like the muted effect. It is difficult to see in the picture but I also incorporated a slight shine effect using the metallic markers.
