Fussy and Fancy.....More than words

Hi Susan here....

Today at Fussy and Fancy we have a new challenge's one of my favourite. The theme is 'MORE THAN WORDS'. The emphasis of your creation has to be on the words, any images used must be secondary to the sentiment.
For full details call across to the Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog you will also be able to see some fabulous inspiration from the Design Team, you will be so impressed it's worth a look!!

Now for my card...

I have used colours very close to my heart for this is a favourite in our family.
The backing papers I have had in my stash for ages, so delicate I couldn't resist using them. The plain green textured card is from Paper Mill Direct, I love using their card and always keep a good supply in stock.

The pearls, ribbon and lace as always are from a little market stall here in Manchester, I wish they were on-line, it is like a hive of craft essentials, everywhere you turn there is something else to look at.

The flowers are all from Hobby Craft.

This gorgeous and very loving sentiment has been designed by Lexi Lee and is available from Fairy Dust Crafts.
Good sentiments are a dream to work with, and although I have kept the shape very simple for this card the design possibilities are endless.

Thank you for taking the time to look and for all your wonderful comments
Love and hugs
