We have to keep on believing

This is a card I made today to try and stay positive. With all the horrible stuff that people close to me are going through I have to find a way of keeping it together and making this card certainly helped. We all have to keep on believing in the good things in life no matter how hard things get.

This card was designed in photoshop, the green background was created and the text in the word believe was done using positive words in word cloud that was added inside the letters that make up the word believe. The word believe and the text "in yourself" was added to the green background. I printed the word believe twice so as to be able to cut out each letter and paper piece it to the card making the word believe stand out.

The recycled element used in this card is the craft cardstock which is backing card from a pack of paper.

Hey there,

Thank you for your entry for this months challenge over at the Just For Fun challenge blog entitled 'Anything Goes' 

I love your card. So clean and simple. Its true that people do not take enough time these days to remember the good things and are easily weighed down by all the bad things that happen to us and the ones we love. I hope this card, should you choose to give it to someone, will help them believe that there is still good things out there and to stay positive and wait for them to appear!

Hope to see you next month over at the Just For Fun challenge blog! New challenges start on the first of every month! 

See you soon! 

Love and hugs
