Texting Crazy....

...Hi there, Susan here...

It is a new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday, what a great challenge!! The theme is called Texting Crazy, and simply means that the text/words should be your main item. Our sponsor is The Stamp Shoppe.

Go on over to Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog for full details of the challenge, you will see all the DT's creations and get yourself some great inspiration, and then don't forget to join in!!! You will have fun!!

The challenge closes on 4th August for entries and the winner will be announced with the next challenge on 5th August.

Now on to my card.... I had great fun with this one, I used a great sketch from Friday Sketchers, it had simple clean lines to it, that to me just called out for this type of card!!

My backing papers are a paper pack from Dovecraft, and I followed a photo inspiration challenge from gingersnap creations for my colours, loved them!! They were all distressed and then mat and layerd onto a maroon card.

I love this verse. I formatted it on my computer, inked the background and mat and layered onto maroon card.

My flowers are a mixture from Wild Orchid Crafts and Hobby Craft, the edges were slightly inked with promarkers.

The ribbon and pin were from our local market, although I did add extra beads to the pins after I coloured the pearl top to match my colour scheme.

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.

Love Susan

  12. Mam this card is beautiful and very different. The papers are so vibrant and I love the flowers you have chosen, they really do blend well with everything else. The inside of this card is also beautiful. I think the sentiment is very true and you've certainly shown it off well. I adore the beaded pins and my favourite things are the little gold mosaic tiles - soooo cute!!
