It's about the Choices

Today is Flutter By Wednesday and Kim issued our challenge this week - to use our favorite quote in our creation. I LOVE quotes, I have a quote journal that I started in college and continue to this, my favorite quote changes often. I've been watching the Harry Potter series over the past week so that I can go see the new one in the theatre made it pretty easy to pick out the Dumbledore quote from 2RedBananas.

It is not our abilities that tell us what we truly are, it is our choices. ~Albus Dumbledore

Today is the last day of our Card Kit Challenges at 2RedBananas. Today we are featuring items from Pink Paislee. Ya'll know me - clean and simple is pretty much my style. So this bold print in this paper really is out of the box for me. But I am really pretty happy with how this card turned out!!

I even decorated the *inside* of my card too!

You can find all the items in the Card Kit at 2RedBananas - Jeanette stocks a LOT of great products in addition to her exclusive stamp line! Here's what we used:

Pink Paislee: Fascinating Collection (Alluring, Eye Popping and Spectacular)

Pink Paislee: Fascinating Chipboard

May Arts: Black grosgrain ribbon
