Timeless Tuesday 'Sentimental' Challenge

Welcome to the Timeless Tuesday #177 Challenge!  Our Hostess is the talented Denise, and her challenge, is all about sentiments!  Denise is challenging us to make a card with a sentiment as focal point.  I checked out all of my sentiments, and they all seem to be short and sweet, so I chose one that would work on a card for my Chemo Card Angel lady.  I send something her way each week, and this seemed the perfect greeting.

Flourishes Classic White Cardstock, Flourishes 'Summer Blooms' Sentiment, Prima Songbird Collection DP, Spellbinders Fancy Tags, Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink, Want to Scrap Bling, Ribbon and Trim from Flourishes, Dimensional Foam
This card began with a piece of Flourishes Classic White CS which was sponged on the outside edges with some Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink.  

The next layer is a piece of DP from the Prima Songbird Collection.  It was wrapped with a piece of Satin Finish Cotton Latte Ribbon, and then a piece of Laural Venise Lace.  Some Want2Scrap bling, finished of the panel.  

A Spellbinder Fancy Tag was cut  and distressed. The sentiment, from the Summer Blossoms stamp set, was stamped, trimmed to fit on the tag, distressed, and adhered, complete with two tiny pearls from the bling on the background panel.  

The focal panel was then adhered to the card using dimensional foam.

This is one of those cards that I wish you could all see in real life.  It's so much prettier than it looks on this little screen of mine!

Thank you for stopping by!  We hope to see your beautiful 'Sentimental' creation in our challenge this week!
