Wherever you go, go with all your heart

I'm back! I realised just now that I haven't posted for 2 months... eek! I've been working long hours at work (and at home) which has done absolutely nothing for my cardmaking mojo... but things at work have settled down a bit now so I'm creating again... yippee!

Are you ready for another Sentimental Sundays challenge? This week we are challenging you to create an item with Pearls and Lace (as well as a sentiment!)

Here's my creation:


Here's another view:


The offset sentiment started out as kind of a mistake but I went with it and discovered a layout that I think I'll use again. Don't you love it when that happens?

The strip of patterned paper is a bit that I found in my scrap drawer, and the lace is also.

You can see what the rest of the Sentimental Sundays team have created this week at the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog. You have until next Sunday to submit your entry if you decide to play along, and the random winner will receive four individual sets of digital sentiments from Raindrop Echo Designs Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection, and a custom watermark from the Custom Designs at Whimsy Stamps!
