Lets Get Sentimental....

Hi Susan here...

Today at Sentimental Sundays we have started a new challenge and the theme is 'Let's Get Sentimental', this means that we want you to put the main focus on your sentiment. For full details of the challenge and to see some fabulous inspiration from the design team call across to the Sentimental Sundays Challenge Blog and join in with us all.

Now for my card....

My beautiful flowered backing paper is from my stash, it was a small square just the right size, I have teamed it up using scraps of chocolate brown coloured card for matting and layering. The edges have all been distressed and glittered. As usual my ribbon, lace and gems are from our local market. The two little brown hearts in the foreground are a die from Sizzix, I have added glitter to one and crackle glaze to the other.

My beautiful sentiment has been designed by Ann Vento and is available from Raindrop Echo Designs,  our sponsor for this challenge. I cut by hand my own shape for the frame and distressed and glittered the edges. My flowers are from Hobby Craft, the leaves are made using a punch. My pins have been altered by adding more beads to the stem, I have had the deep red and white beads for ages and they looked so good next to this colour scheme.
