IO Challenge- Words of Encouragement

Today the IO challenge is all about words of encouragement. What could be more encournaging than advice from "the Duke" John Wayne? I really like the new cowboy silhouettes and sayings that Dina Kowal created.

For today's card, I added some Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Festive Berries, and Chiiped Sapphire Distress Ink to white cardstock and then spritzed everything with Gold Shimmer Spritz to blend the colors. I then added the Rodeo Silhouette 2 (D13166) and Courage Is saying (D13150) saying in black ink. Here is a close-up of the shimmer from the gold Shimmer Spritz:
