I made this card for my niece who had a baby boy in December. I used this adorable image from Mo's Digital Pencil. It's called Hush. I coloured it with Copics. The dies are by Spellbinders - Fancy Labels and the original labels. I sponged the die centre with the die in place.

I used an embossing folder to make the centre panel. My sentiment is from Hero Arts and inked in Versafine Black. My flowers are from a stamp by JOFY from PaperArtsy. I stamped it three times, coloured the flowers with Copics and fussy cut. Added some enamel dots to the centres.

The sentiment stamp I used is from a Tim Holtz set I got last week with my Simon Says Stamp order. As you know I like to use dies and embossing on my cards and this one certainly does. The brick wall embossing folder is by Sizzix and the die from Spellbinders.

I used some PP from a Couture Creations and a very simple design. I embossed the quote and cut out the frame. Finished with a little bow with ribbon that came as an extra from my order from Ellen Hudson. We would love to see you join us at Die Cut Divas with your sentiment/quote cards.

I printed off the image a bit larger and then cropped it. I then used a circle die and a scalloped fancy die for the frame. I distressed the edges of the background PP and the die. Added some Prima flowers and some punched leaves. The PP is from a pack from Couture Creations.
