Lexi's Creations.....Just a Sentiment

Hi Susan here....

Do you ever think....WOW where has the time gone....well that was my thought when I realised it was that time again for another challenge over at Lexi's Creations.
We have a fabulous challenge this time, the theme is 'JUST A SENTIMENT'. I love making sentiment cards, especially when you have a gorgeous sentiment to work with.
For full details of the challenge our sponsor and to check out some of the most gorgeous inspiring work from our design team call across to Lexi's Creations.

Now onto my card....

I have made a monochrome type card, using different shades of my favourite colour 'pink'.
My beautiful crinkle look paper is from my stash, originally from a box of 12x12 papers.
The ribbon and pearls are from our local market.
The butterflies I made using a punch and a die, colouring the card with inks and glitter.

This beautiful sentiment designed by Lexi Lee and available from Fairy Dust Crafts is called 'Love Sentiment'. I have mat and layered it using dies and then inking the shapes. The edges I used stickles to glitter them.
Go and check out Fairy Dust Crafts for the beautiful and inspiring sentiments that Lexi has designed.

My flowers are a mix, the smaller roses and buds are from Hobby Craft and the large rose is handmade using a die.

This is a close-up of my tile....I coloured the tile with pink paint first the over stamped it twice first with text then with a butterfly, then when it was dry I distressed the edges with white paint. The tile has been made out of fimo.
