Brighter Days

I need some Get Well cards for my stash - so I made today's card with the "Wishing You Brighter Days" sentiment from Healing Touch Sentiments from PTI.
First I adhered a piece of Tissue Tape/Sketch Book from Idea-ology/Tim Holtz across a white 4"x4" panel.  I stamped the sentiment in the bottom corner with Archival Jet Black Ink.  Then I took a wooden frame and a wooden dragonfly from Stationers Desk by Prima - inking the frame with black ink and the dragonfly with Gold Pigment ink.  I adhered them over the tissue tape with Glossy Accents.  Then I adhered the panel to the 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" card base. Even though it's white on white - the layering gives the card a finished look.  I also like to wrap the tape around the panel edge - to be sure the ends won't lift off.

I'm linking my card to this week's Cas-ology - Cue Card - Wood challenge.
I'm also squeaking this into the Stamplorations Challenge - Borders and Stamps

Paper:  White - PTI
Ink:  Archival Jet Black, Color Box Gold Pigment Ink
Accessories:  Tissue Tape/Sketch Book - Idea-ology/Tim Holtz, Wood embellishments - Stationers Desk/Prima, Glossy Accents - Ranger.
