Aud Sentiments #55 - Any Sentiment

A big hello to all the new DT girls here at Aud Sentiments and a sad farewell to those going on to pastures new.
Our next challenge over at Aud Sentiments is Any Sentiment, so a free rein here but do please remember your sentiment! We're being sponsored by DTSArt, who supplied images for the DT to work with. I've used fairy-pari-berry for my card.



I digitally pieced the image using a range of papers from Crafty Ann's, then printed the image several times and decoupaged it and mounted it onto a scalloped circle nestie cut from felt. I won a pile of felt last year and this is the first time I've got round to die cutting it! The paper is from Raspberry Road and was a magazine freebie. Flowers are die cut from felt again using a Marianne Designs die and I've added buttons to the centres. The Honeysuckle Vine die is from Memory Box. Card is finished with some pearls.
The green base layer is cut from a piece in my bit box from which I'd already cut an oval die, I managed to squeeze the vine from it too before I matted the backing paper onto it!!

  28. Great card Carol - super image and the papers are gorgeous (suspect I might have them hidden away somewhere too).

    I'm sure I spotted a winning card somewhere - scurries off to check. Yup, over at Joanna Sheen's Challenge blog on their talent spot. Well done and well deserved too!

    Have fun in the playground - I think the paddling pool is a bit crowded this week.
