Here's an Oldie

I was going to say morning but it has just slipped into the afternoon so good afternoon to everyone!  Well I am somewhat bemused as all yesterday they were saying about a hosepipe ban and it seems to have done nothing but rain!!  Mind you last time we had a hosepipe ban we were the only ones in the country to have one and as soon as they introduced it, it rained every day!!

My card today is one I made several months ago and I really like it and I don't know why I haven't posted it before.  I am posting it now because I have been doing DT work so I don't really have much to show just a few that I have in reserve.

No image just a sentiment which I quite like making the sentiment the focal point.  No Design paper either I have just used Black Magic Coredinations which is so yummy, it is black with a colour on the back which will show through when embossed or sanded.  I have embossed it and then sanded it.  The sentiment is a digital by Whimsy and the flower is a die from Marianne, the border is made using my Edgeabilities.  Ribbon, brad and spacer from my stash. I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Paperminutes - Bingo (Flowers, Ribbon, Swirls, Script)
The Paper Makeup Stamps - Word Art
The Crazy Challenge - Use Die/Punch
One Stitch at a Time - Use a Digi or Don't
Scrappy Frogs - Die Cut Challenge
