In every generation there is a Chosen One

Sharing a card featuring a fab image from the sadly closed Saturated Canary called Honor.

For my layout I’ve followed the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  I swapped out the leaf element for my image and printed the long thin rectangle straight to my top piece of cardstock.  I printed a sentiment that’s a running joke with the recipient and our fellow ‘KFC Club’ members.  Because I wanted to get that in, I essentially shifted the sentiment to being part of the rectangle design element and skipped out on a larger sentiment, even though this is actually a birthday card.

I die cut a circle around my image rather than fussy cutting it so that I could play along at Addicted to CAS.  But I also left the image to hang off the edge of the die cut to fit the current theme at My Time To Craft.

The card was starting to do the rounds of the club members at work today (yes, some of us are still keeping things going even amid all this chaos) and has gone down a treat.  Although the recipient isn’t known for her archery skills, she is known for her very pink skirts and lovely black hair that’s always beautifully styled.
