It's all about the words...

Joanna Sheen has a challenge this week which is called 'Totally Sentimental' where the object of the challenge is to use a sentiment as the main focal point of your card.

Now this is quite an unusual thing for me to do, but it just so happens that the Stamp Addicts Etched Flowers sets, which I was playing about with a while ago, happen to contain a number of 'flowery; quotes which, I think are just perfect for this theme.

So here is something I have created ....

For this card I stampd the quote on to vellum, using Stayzon, and edge the vellum with a green fine line pen, before mounting on to another piece of card which I had prestamped with the little star flower from the same set. I covered up my 'sticking' with some lovely flowery candy dots.

Sorry for the quality of the picture, which is paericularly rubbish - even by my standards - but hopefully you get the idea!

I would like to enter this in to the following challenges:

Joanna Sheen - Totally Sentimental
Make it Monday
Anything Goes - Make your own background
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by today.
