Playing in Paradise #59 - Meaningful Life Quotes

With this as the prompt, how could I not play along? Playing in Paradise #59 is this:
Now, being me, I've had the card made for days and am only now getting it posted! 

Supplies: papers and clock/lock stamps from Bo Bunny;
Emerson quote from My Favorite Things;
Vintage Photo & Old Paper distress inks; Versamark & Pirate Gold EP;
nifty button from stash


I wanted to keep the focus on the quote, so I tried to keep embellishing to a minimum, but it got away from me a little bit. Ahem. Anyway, I like how this turned out - I love using quotes on cards, and I want to do it more often. Thanks for the reminder, Merlie! You've got until tomorrow at noon to play along, so quick, go get inky!
xoxo,
Jessi

This is one of those 'gotta add this to my favorites' cards. Simply beautiful in it's simplicity. Great quote.

I find it hard to embellish cards that have the sentiment/quote as the focal point....I reckon yours is just spot on. The quote is so true as well, a gentle reminder for us all each day!
