Sentimental Sundays....Focus on the Sentiment....

Hi Susan here....

Today at Sentimental Sundays a new challenge has begun and the theme is
'Focus on the Sentiment'
For full details of the challenge and to see some awsome creations from the design team call across to the Sentimental Sundays Blog and join in the fun with us!!

Our Sponsor this time is Heart Song Designs, and don't forget to check out the freebie download that is given for you to use on your creations at the end of the Sentimental Sundays Post.

Now onto my card....

I love making cards that use just the sentiment as the main focus point, and Ann Vento who designs all the sentiments for Raindrop Echo Designs has designed so many beautiful ones just calling out to be used, if you haven't already you really must make a visit to this store, if you love using sentiments then this is the place you need to go to.
Today I have made a Stubby Diamond Card, I love these cards they are so dramatic with their intricate folds.

My backing papers are from a 12x12 scrapbook pad from Hot off the press and is called Sara Papers. This pad has some of the most gorgeous papers. My flowers are from Hobby Craft and the leaves are made using a punch. As usual my ribbon and gems are from our local market.

This sentiment is one of my quotes that I collect, Ann designed it for me and I love it, it was a freebie on the Sentimental Sundays Blog a few weeks ago. The frame you can buy from Raindrop Echo Designs, I printed out two of these framees and cut the centre out of the top one, very carefully around all the beautiful little leaves, I then coloured this with chalks and added gems around the edge. I attached it to the bottom layer that contained the quote and used 3D pads to raise it slightly.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my card I hope you liked it, and also for leaving all your wonderful comments.
