I received this awesome sentiment through an image swap previously. I think it is a really sweet thing to put on a card, or to write it inside. I used my new Sizzix BigKick and the Cuttlebug 'French Script' embossing folder for the background layer of this card. I feel that it's one of those all round great versatile cards to use for a variety of occasions :)
Oh, and the shoelace mentioned in the title of this post refers to the use of a perfectly coloured green shoelace I ended up owning when I bought a pair of joggers that came with a spare pair of shoelaces in a different colour--unfortunately/fortunately (however you see it) there was only one, and so I made use of it on this card. Funny how you can make anything work in card making!!
Thanks for looking!
