Sassy Cheryl's Challenge-Lace and Hand Made Flowers My Favorite !

Tuesday means a new, Sassy Cheryl's Challenge, and I am the hostess.  I chose Lace and Hand made Flowers, two of my favorite elements when making cards. Here is my creation:


Do you think you are on the wrong Challenge site?  No, this is an awesome sentiment from the, A Walk in the Light, stamp set from which I decided to use just the sentiment for my card this week.  The sentiment was cut out with a spellbinder die and airbrushed while still in the die and mounted on a different label I had cut with my cricut.  Hey, you gotta play with all the toys :)  I airbrushed the edge of a paper lace doile to mount the sentiment labels.

My flowers are cuttlebug dies and the middle one is a cuttlebug and MFT combined.  A ribbon and lace center border, two butterfly punches and two metallic corners finish out my challenge card.

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT cards to see what beautiful flowers and lace and Sassy Images they have chosen.  Grab a Sassy image and  join the challenge for a chance to win a couple of images in the random challenge drawing held each week.

Be sure to keep your eyes open for a big surpise  Sassy Cheryl has to announce in June, I know a lot of you are gonna like it :)  I for one am very excited and can't wait!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day...don't forget to play along!!!

How tricky you are Cathy and how smart! I'm with Judy, I was looking for the image too. Never thought about using one of the sentiments by itself. Worked out great and love those flowers too. Lace and handmade flowers are two of my favorite embellishments too. Add some ribbon and you'd have mine!

Hey there, my sassy sistah!! First...a fabulous challenge theme!! But don't think for a minute that I didn't KNOW you'd be making those darling quilled flowers you always make so beautifully!! hehe! And, next...I did a double-take when I saw your card! Leave it to you, m'dear, to mix it up a bit!! I absolutely love the idea of using a sentiment as the focal point! And this sentiment is one of my favorites!! You nailed it, sugar!! Sending hugs your way!! Pat
