"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?" by Marianne Williamson

Don't be afraid to sparkle!

I saw this quote a little while back and thought it would be perfect on an ATC. This ATC is my contribution to my ARTHaven group swap. I've been in a monochrome mood lately. I printed out the words and glued them to the ATC blank, then just chose a color and just went with it. I recently received an order of  Tim Holtz Distress Ink and this one is called Faded Jeans. Then I used black paint to make the squiggly lines and stamped the little flowers. I used Ranger Stickles in Crystal and Silver to make the flowers sparkle!

I like the quote. It has helped me in my everyday life lately. At work I tend to try not to be noticed and after seeing this, I thought maybe I should not be afraid to sparkle and shine at work. Maybe it will lead to bigger and better things! Or, if not, at least I'll be myself and will be happy. :)
