"Enjoy the Journey" ~ by Donna K. Baes

How are all of our Pretty Little Peacocks Today?
Enjoy the Journey

Donna K here from Created by Donna K with today's post.
My very first post as an official "Pinquette"

I chose to make a card for this particular "first post"occasion because....
I love to make cards and I LOVE to celebrate.
"Enjoy the Journey" is the perfect sentiment for this occasion.
This is a new journey for me and also a reminder to enjoy every minute.

For this card I chose a 5 1/2" X 5 1/2" card base. The base is corrugated and super chunky.
I layered, embossed, textured and placed my papers off center to give it a vintage feel.

I love lots of embellishments on my cards when I'm feeling "vintage-y."
Notice the gold and aqua stick pin to the left of the clock?
My NEW FAVORITE embellishment...thank you very much Pinque Peacock!
{Find them ... Here }

I enjoy decorating the insides of my cards with coordinating papers. It is totally not necessary but I find it a fun surprise for most people when they open the card and the inside is pretty as well.
It also takes away from my shotty penmanship!

Thank you for letting me share today.

I hope you enjoy your journey as you get to know all of the new "Pinquettes"!

Be happy and Smile! ~Donna K
