Never Give Up

Happy Tuesday crafty friends.  Hope you are having a great day so far.  The bliss of my sunny time off is coming to an end today as I head back to work.  I have a new post for you today and tomorrow (I did a lot of crafting on my time off - can you tell?) and then I'll have some oldies but goodies for you throughout September.

This clean and simple card is for CAS-ual Fridays 18 (CFC18) - make a red, white and black card inspired by a book (in honour of international literacy day on September 8th) and All Things Unity 39 (ATU39) - embellishment, Unity/Ippity stamp, rub-on/sticker (mine is the ric rac) (ETA - apparently I can't read/write properly as my original post said ribbon instead of stamp).  I love books and I love red, white and black so the CFC challenge was a must.  I love combining challenges and I haven't played along with ATU forever so thought it was a good combination.  The book I was inspired by was Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón.  It is an amazing book (highly recommend it) about a quest for  the origins of a rare book.  The main character is very persistent so thought this sentiment was appropriate and the writing in the background was appropriate for a book about a book.  ETA - I forgot that I could also play along with the Play Date Cafe Color Challenge 97 with this too!

Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate your comments.
Have a terrific day,
