One more card for Peninah
For Peninah, because girls can also get blue cards! Here's the proof. There's nothing much masculine about this card, right?
Again, I found a useful sketch to follow, this time from Papertake Weekly. And although I first thought that the previous sketch would be easier, I was wrong. So wrong. I loved working this sketch, for some reason everything just flowed great! Maybe other things made a difference too, who knows. My mojo is back apparently. I have to enter the card into the Colour Create Challenge as well, this colour combo is one of my absolute favourites.
The poem inside is a great one for a teenager, it starts like this: "Dare to be honest, dare to be free. Dare to feel what you feel, say what you want to say. Maybe those who stay quiet are more afraid than you?" It's all about finding yourself and your own way, and daring to show it - strenghts and weaknesses alike. Isn't that what the teens - and certainly the confirmation - are all about?
And in case you're wondering about those loose threads on the inside of the card - I'm going to tie them around the rolled-up money gift... ;)
