Perfect Sentiment Challenge ... Guest Designer

 Woohoo!  I was chosen as a guest designer at the Perfect Sentiment Challenge blog.   How fun!  I'm so excited to be a part of this wonderful group for a short time.

Perfect Sentiments always offers a challenge along with a twist. :) 

This week ....

The Challenge: create a card with a sentiment for Mother’s Day. Sentiment must be on the front of the card.

The Twist: add some handmade flowers to you card. You can make them with punches, dies, Cricut cartridges, etc. 

I chose to use hand-crocheted flowers for my 'twist.'   The amazing little girl stamp was so much fun to color and place on my card.

 Card Recipe - 

stamps - Flowers for Mimi (Penny Black), A Godly Mother (Clear Dollar Stamps)
paper - worn parchment, white, dp, orange, blue
ink - black, versamark
copics - YR00, YR04, YR07, B00, B05, Y21, Y26, Y28, R81, E50, E53, C1, C3, Y02, Y06, 0
accessories - spellbinders dies (border), pearls, vagabond, baker's twine, handmade crocheted flowers

I hope you'll join us in this challenge.  It's tons of fun and offers a great chance to try something new or refresh yourself on an old technique.  Good luck!

Have a wonderful Wednesday and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!
