Sentiment Only

Good morning bloggers!  Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Lexi's Creations and the theme for this challenge is to use a Sentiment Only!  Here is my card for the challenge:


I have used a beautiful sentiment from Fairydust Crafts called Precious and Few.  I have cut it out using my Spellbinders Labels die (can't remember which number lol).  I have used gold mirri card and my Spellbinders Ironworks motifs for the border and around the sentiment.  I have used my script embossing folder for the background and the ribbon is from my stash.  I think sentiment only cards make a lovely statement and they are not too difficult as there is no colouring involved!  So for those of you who may not like colouring this would be an ideal challenge to enter.  If you pop over to Fairydust Crafts there are a lot of really pretty sentiments you could use and enter the challenge over at Lexi's.  We are sponsored this week by Cropstop.com and the lucky winner will win a $15 gift certificate!


Please pop over to Lexi's and see what my talented team mates have come up with for some inspiration - we would love to see your creations!

Thanks for looking and take care xx
