FTTC132- Focus on Sentiments

 

SONY DSC

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone~

I am happy to tell you that my kids had a great first day of school yesterday! I went back to my taxi mom job again too :) As much as I love the lazy days of summer, I also love these busy school schedule too!

I made one card for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC132) . Cindy is challenging us to use a sentiment(s) as a focal point of your creation! Please visit Flourishes Blog for more information about the challenge. Can’t wait to see your creation!

 

I decided to use Bee My Honey for today’s card. To try not to make the image for the focal point, I stamped it with VersaMark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then I lightly colored with Copic markers. The sentiment was stamped on the lacey circle panel and I sponged with ink. The sentiment panel was mounted on the yellow fancy tag panel. and embellished with linen ribbon. I hope the way I designed the card will bring your eyes to the sentiment more than the image :)

This card is also submitted to CR84FN Color Challenge 36 (CR84FN36) and Crazy 4 Challenges 101 (C4C101) - I did the row of Embossing, Die Cuts and Ribbon.
