The Earth Laughs in Flowers...

Hi all!  Happy Wednesday to you!  Well it's still rainy and gloomy here, so I thought I would play along with a couple of fun cheerful challenges to brighten my spirits.. And hopefully yours too.. 8-)


For today's Post I chose to play along with The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #108 and Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #118 To use this Gorgeous Topiary created by Julia Sandvoss at The Craft Mom as this weeks inspiration. 


Well, during the process of deciding on the Various DP's and sentiments for my creation, I discovered I had no sentiment stamps that would work with the this weeks Sweet Stop Sketch, at least not the way I wanted them to anyway..lol  So I actually typed this quote out on my trusty lap top and printed it up on some white CS form my stash.  I inked the edges of my Quote with pinky peach pigment ink, added a nice little embossed edge with my Score Pal, matted it up with pink CS from my stash and popped it up with dimensionals.  For my BG I chose a combination of more pink CS from my stash and some fabulous DP from K&Co.  My darling little butterfly's were cut with my Cricut using the Potpourri cartridge and then blinged up with a few gems and a touch of Star Dust Stickles for their wings.  To finish up my happy little creation, I added a bit of ribbon, pretty prima flowers and a fun little gem for my flowers center. 8-)

Hope you all enjoy your day & Thanks so much for stopping by!

  10. The best part about printing the sentiment vs. stamping is that it's always straight and the ink is never uneven! PRETTY card, Shannon! LOVE the colors and the sentiment and the tiny butterfly!
