Triumph Over Fear

Here's my card for the current CASE Study Challenge (#181)  - this month the Muse is Joni Nina Andaya and here is the beautiful card to inspire us!

I love Joni's card, especially the pastels with contrasting black bits, 
I'm always drawn to adding black to a card!
I used some Theresa Collins dp to cover the card base and then 
added a black frame using SNSS Bookmark and More dies. I ran the die halfway 
through to get the interesting top bit, then turned the die-cut around in the die
 to run the other end through. 
The sentiment is from Verve Words of Wisdom and it's 
stamped on a Nestie Oval cut from vellum.  Other elements include 
a nest of silver thread, a felt rose (MFT Rolled Rose Die-namic) and 
some vellum and black leaves (Elizabeth Craft Leaf Dies).
The sun's shining here in Northern Ireland and it actually feels
like spring might be on the way!
Thanks for stopping by today, hope it's a good one for you!
