Hi Susan here....
Today over at Cute Card Thursday we have a new challenge starting and the theme is 'Play on Words', this simply means your sentiment should 'mimic' your image, like a bunny image with a "Some Bunny Loves You", or a hippo image with "Hippo Birthday", you get the idea, you can find full details of the challenge and plenty of inspiration from the design team on the Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog.
Our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp, and they are offering the lucky winner of this challenge....wait for it.......$25.00 voucher to spend in their store, WOW! Now thats worth entering the challenge for isn't it!!!!
For my card, I have designed my own sketch to use this time, my backing papers are from Nitwits, I distressed all the edges with Tim Holtz distressing inks to age them. The little doily I gently coloured with the same distressing ink. My pin that I added extra pearls to and my ribbon and pearls I bought from our local market.
The punched border was made using a Multi Shaper, AllDeco Punch,
My flowers are a mix, the large one I made myself using some of the backing paper and a five petal punch, and a lot of patience!!!! The smaller ones are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
My 'Play on Words' sentiment was made on the computer.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.
