Inspire Me Friday {Let that Sentiment Shine}

Welcome, everyone, to another ‘Inspire Me Friday’ featuring the new ‘Coffee Love’ set!  There’s something extra lovely about a pretty sentiment embossed in silver or gold, don’t ya think?  It seems to be a trend lately, and one my arm didn’t need to be twisted much to get on board with.  I’ve always loved how metallic embossing instantly dresses up a card and adds a little extra elegance, AND, I’ve always loved how Dyane mixes cursive and manuscript fonts in her sentiments…

…oh, yeah…I knew that sentiment with the larger cursive word would look awesome in shiny gold…such a pretty flow to it!  And of course, embossing on the vellum just adds to the awesome-ness of it!;) And that’s exactly where this card started…with the embossed sentiment.  The rest of it is no big deal…

…just some things I found to work with that pretty sentiment, including the little circular heart image from the set I placed on the front of my jar.  So how about you?  Have you gotten on board with the metallics yet?  If not, you should give it a try.  It may be that extra little elegant touch your next creation needs!

Thanks so much for dropping in today!
