Life doesn't have to be perfect! Quote, C4C142!

Happy Saturday, everyone!  It is time for another challenge with the crazies at Crazy 4 Challenges(C4C142).   Silke Kittmann is back with another challenge for us all and this week.  It is a sketch!  

For my card, I am using Verve's Words of Wisdom, Relax, Love Story, and Thankful Accents stamp sets.  I am also using Verve's Cut Above Love Birds die set. 

I am using some new designer papers I got called Beautiful Moments by  Carta Bella.  For the focal image I stamped the quote then lightly stamped the word "RELAX" all over for a soft subtle wording background.  Then, I stamped the circle frame from Thankful Accents in Memento pink for a light touch frame accent.  I added the stamped dove and die cut, a couple of buttons, and a coordinated seam binding bow.  
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
