Great Friends....

Hi Susan here....

Over at Sentimental Sundays a new challenge has started and the theme is 'Anything Goes plus a sentiment'.  We have two sponsors for this weeks challenge - Hearts Song Designs and Raindrop Echo Designs. For full details of the challenge and to see some absolutely fabulous inspiration from the design team call across to the Sentimental Sundays Challenge Blog and join in with us.

Now for my card...

I decided for this one to do an old favourite of mine in the card shape - A Pop Out Card. I love making these cards they are so effective, and give a WOW factor for anyone receiving them.

This is the inside of the card and shows the hidden verse behind a pop out frame. All my backing papers are from Bearlymine Designs, I have aged with inks and distressed the edges. The lace and gems are as usual from our local market. The swirls were made using some of the backing paper and a Sizzix decorative accents die.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima. The leaves I punched out using some of the background paper.

My sentiment and frame designed by our very own Ann Vento are from Raindrop Echo Designs, I have coloured the border of the frame using chalks to match my colour scheme.
