For mine, I decided to make a card for a special friend who I met at Jane Austen lecture back at university. We have made Jane a bit of a mascot for us so when I saw this reading challenge I knew just the theme and recipient.
This quotation is from Sense & Sensibility and is such a great motto for life: Know your own happiness. It's given in the book as advice to a character who is on the cusp of a decision and needs to work out what path to follow. It's beautiful and simple, no?
The greeting is hand written on a small natural card piece - also from Claire. I topped it with a few layered up flowers in matching colors and added some striped candies to finish it off.
It was definitely a fun challenge for me to think of my favourite books and authors so I can't wait to see what everyone else does with it!
