Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #188 - Add a Sentiment

Hello everyone and welcome to my creative space, hope you are all having a wonderful day!

The new Challenge is up at Crafty Cardmakers.
Pam is our host for this challenge and it is all about adding a sentiment.
We would like this to be more than just a tiny peel off in one corner.  It would be nice if it was the focal point on your creation but we won't insist on that.  Just make sure it is prominent on whatever you make.
Anything you wish to enter is fine, just please read the rules and remember our 15 Challenge limit.

The papers used on my card are from Maja.

Used a piece of gauze under the flower cluster for some extra texture ..

..  and randomly sprinkled some prills.

My sentiment was stamped onto a piece of white cardstock and then heat embossed ..

.. and I curled the corners of some of the papers layers for more interest.

A twine bow ..

.. a piece of lace at the side and also some stamped stitching.

Would love for you to pop on over to the Crafty Cardmakers blog and take a look at the wonderful creations by my Teamies.  I'm sure you will feel inspired to join in the fun!!!

  6. Hi Marg, I hope you are keeping warm! It is almost winter but we seem to be having quite nice days with a bit of rain around which must be keeping the temperature down.. Your card is gorgeous!

  11. Another beautiful creation Margy... You used my favourite papers too. So many layers and something interesting in each one too. I love those leaves... are they die cuts? all in all a stunning card.

  12. You make the most amazing cards! Love your perfectly designed and layered card! Hugs!

  13. Gorgeous card Margaret! I love these papers. I wouldn't normally think of blue plaid patterns being feminine, but they sure as heck are when you use them!! I love the doily tucked under with the touches of prills, just lovely. Lots of wonderful layers and beautiful flowers leading the eye to your fantastic sentiment panel. The black stamping works well as a real eye grabber! Wonderful card my friend! hugs :)

  14. So pretty!! Thanks for the inspiration.
