Sunrise Sunset Serene Silhouette

The CAS challenge at SCS yesterday was to do a card inspired by this quote:

May every sunrise hold more promise
and every sunset hold more peace.

The quote made me think of this card that I had done with the Watercolor Splotches technique.  I don't believe I had ever posted it. (I can see that I have learned a lot about editing since I did this picture.)

I love the quote and think I will do it up on the computer to use in sympathy or thinking of you cards.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Serene Silhouettes (stamped twice)
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn, Re-inkers
Paper:  Shimmery White, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
Other:  Aquapainter, Ticket Corner Punch, Square Lattice EF, Rich Razzleberry Ribbon (retired), Linen Thread, Basic Rhinestones

I hope the week is off to a good start for you.  Thanks for visiting.
