Sentimental Sundays #14 DT - Switching it up a bit!

Hey ho! It’s my favourite day of the week again! Yep, it’s Sunday and time for another Sentimental Sundays challenge ;).

This week we are switching things up a bit and trying a new style or a new technique.

Taking part in the challenge is eaaaasy! All you need to do is to create a new project that includes a sentiment, follows the theme and…that’s it! As always there is a fab freebie set of digital sentiments for grabs and if you want to see more of Ann’s fab digi word art creations, hop over to Whimsy Stamps!

Moving on to my creation... I based my card on the sketch from Everybody Art Challenge #101:

And here's my card....:

For this week’s challenge I wanted to try an easel card as I haven’t tried one of those for AGES! And I also wanted to try to work with….flowers ;-). What’s new or unusual about the latter you may ask? Well, I have seen so many absolutely stunning cards generously sprinkled with flowers… And, you may be surprised, but I really struggle with cards like this… I am never 100% happy with the way I layer the flowers… but apparently practice makes perfect, so I will just have to keep on trying and torture you with an occasional post documenting my progress…lol!

This card is already in the post travelling to my brother-in-law and his wife to help them celebrate their wedding anniversary ;-))).

I used a recipe from Stampin' for the weekend with 3 DP's (all K&Co, 2 in the main background and third used for matting the vintage image), 2 Flowers (I've got a just a couple more than 2...I hope this will still count lol!) 1 Ribbon some Gems or Charms.

I also used lots of Vintage Photo distress ink, my fav swirlies stamped with Sepia Archival, beautiful and delicate lace and ribbon and some pearly dangly bits (my gems). Oh, and of course, flowers!

The French ticket and the second sentiment are both designed by Raindrop Echo for Whimsy Stamps.

Please have a look at the rest of the DT creations, they are absolutely gorgeous! Hope you can join us in this week’s challenge ;).

Ps. If I am a bit quiet today that’s because my and my hubby are going on a balloon flight – our anniversary treat ;)))). Keep your fingers crossed so the weather is nice as we were sooooo looking forward to watching the sun set from the sky…..

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely Sunday!
