This card begins with a very sweet image of a little boy cradled in a tree, lost in thought. He is inked in golden brown on paper that I created using a watercolor technique with tan and teal inks. The image is layered onto textured, deep teal card stock, held in place with two little caramel colored brads. It is then mounted on textured, caramel card stock to a finished size of 4.5" x 6".

The quote is printed on paper that was handmade by recycling my card-making scraps and then aged. It reads:

"To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Finally, a few cutout leaves are sprinkled around for embellishment.

All of my cards have a label attached to the back, indicating that my proceeds from your purchase will be donated to non-profit organizations that benefit under-served children or those who face unfair challenges. (Please see my Shop Profile page at for more details).

The cards are blank inside and come with a recycled white or ivory envelope. I insert them in a cellophane sleeve to protect them during shipment...and are shipped to you in a padded envelope for extra care.
