Stamping Sensations DT Post

Another lovely week in which I have travelled to Hampshire and Berkshire! A few days at home before packing time again and am hoping that I will get some crafting time (despite having to go to the dentist!) as I have an order for a diamond anniversary card which I need to get done pronto!
Time for another challenge at Stamping Sensations and this month we have Tonic as our sponsor and our theme is...... Dies and/or Punches.  Don't forget to stamp!
This card didn't quite turn out how I imagined it in my head...

I don't know what it is about this sentiment stamp but it rates as one of my all time faves.
I stamped it in Versafine Black onto a scrap of lemon polka dot paper.
(Yellow is not a colour I use very often as it doesn't come in my list of colours I really really like.... )
The dies are the Spellbinders  fancy rectangle set which I longed for and have very rarely used since acquired a couple of years ago!
I used 2 of the dies from the set and cut out in bright white card.
A scrap of fan shaped lace acorss the middle of the lemon paper and then the smallest die cut stick around the edge.
The flower is also made using dies and the flourishes came from a bit of another die cut which I hadn't used!
Die cut butterfly and a few sparklies to finish and dabbed a bit of stickles onto the rose centre,
This was a good way too to use up all my little odd bits too so will be visiting the Playground this week.

Please pop over and see what my talented teamies have dished up for us this month and I hope you can join us!

Gorgeous card Viv - and I can see why you love the sentiment so much. It's perfectly designed isn't it! I see you were not far from here recently - I think I was recovering from the school reunion at the time.

That is a nice sentiment. The yellow spotty paper works well against it too. Never get round to embossing my sentiments. Must try harder! Hugs Mrs A.
