365 Cards - Day 59 and Card Patterns Sketch 12

This is the sketch for this weeks Card Patterns challenge # 12, this is the first time I have entered this challenge but I liked the sketch so I thought I would have a go.

I am using this sketch to make a card which will also double for the challenge on 365 cards

Todays challenge on 365 Cards is 'A Certain Sentiment' the object is to use a sentiment you wouldnt normally use so you have different cards for unexpected occasions.

Today's sentiment is 'I Miss You' or something similar

Here is my card

I took a white base card and layered it with PP from DCWV Wedding stack, added the next layer which is SU card in Lavender lace. I cut a strip of another PP from the same stack to add on top of the card layer.

I layered my silk flowers and held them together with a brad, positioned one each side of the card leaving a gap between them.

The sentiment was also used by Mandy on her card, she very kindly left the link to the website so I went and downloaded of for myself. Once printed I matted this onto a small piece of the SU card and added it to the bottom of my card.

I used my Cricut to cut a small heart at 1.5" stuck a pearl heart to the top of it and placed it into the gap using 3D pads.

Hope you like it

Like your colour combo esp the lace. That sentiment is really cool.

That is really lovely, I love the silk flowers, they make it look really luscious and sophisticated.

You are welcome to the link to Bethany's blog, it really is a fabulous resource. There is a link to another word art source on the sidebar of my blog, Melanies Digital Creations. She does loads of freebies too.
