Words Only - No Image - for MAWTT

Good morning to all my crafty friends and visitors.  Hope you are well and warm!! It is my turn to host the challenge at MAWTT and since I do love to use quotes and sentiments  I asked the team to make the sentiment the focal point and use no images at all.   Please pop across to the blog to see what the rest of the team have come up with.  You won't be sorry because there is some great inspiration for you.

My Card


Recipe
white card stock - Papermania
pink pearlescent card stock - Pennies Worth
embossing folder - SB Mbossabilities Framed Labels 18
flowers - Memory Box Fabulous Phlox
SB Labels 18 
Sentiment - Quietfire Designs
 pearls from stash

I used the Papermania 300gsm cardstock to make a hinged card which is just slightly larger than 7" x 5" but will just squeeze into the envelope.  I used the letterpress technique and Tim Holtz distress ink to colour the folder before running the white card  through.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment before cutting it out with SB Labels 18. t was a simple job then to just diecut a few flowers and add the pearls.

We would love you to join in our challenge this time.

Take care!

Hi Christine
You have set a great challenge for MAWTT.
Beautiful card and sentiment. I must dig this embossing folder out as I've got it lurking at the back of a box.
Best wishes.
