One Stop Crafts Challenge #95 - DT Card

Hi all we have a new challenge for you today at ONE STOP CRAFTS CHALLENGE and our Maggie has chosen the theme
We would like to see you use a sentiment, verse or poem as the focal point on your card or project.  Our sponsor this week is WINK, WINK, WINK
Here is my DT card
I have used my oval Nestie to frame the sentiment on my card and is a saying from Laura Ingalls Wilder, I have only used this once before but I do love it and it inspired me with my card.
The gingham bp is from Bearlymine the ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, I have added a few spots of bronze Stickles to the ribbon and pulled it together in the middle, then mounted the frame.
The flowers I made myself and used a small and large six petal punch.  I distressed the larger petals the used an earthy tone chalk to give them an even more distressed look, I added chalk and bronze Stickles to the butterflies as well.

This is a closer look at the sentiment.

Once again I can recommend visiting the other DTM their work is gorgeous and there you will certainly find so much inspiration.
I really look forward to seeing you enter our challenge this week I am sending hugs to all.

Lorraine, you have such a talent at designing cards. I love the way that gauzy ribbon comes down and the very beautiful butterfly and flowers are used. So gorgeous.

Lorraine said...

this is beautiful i have never made a card where the sentiment is the main focal point so i might take the challenge and give it a go xx

Josephine said...

Oh, that's lovely. A very challenging challenge too, it seems to me, as I'm not inclined to use many words on cards! Love the flowers.
