... this week's OLW challenge is being hosted by Jennifer at Styles Ink - OLW65 - Sentiment-a-mania - Jennifer would like us to make a one layer card with the focus on the sentiment, or at least must share the focus equally with any image! I really like this idea - I do have a number of rather lovely sentiment/verse stamps, but I don't seem to use them as much as I should - so here goes.
I've kept the card really simple - the verse is an Irish Blessing - it's just gorgeous. Stamped in green!!
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Celtic Heritage, Irish Blessings
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Garden Green (verse), Memento - Bamboo Leaves - images
Accessories: Card from stash
The card is reasonably small, just 4" × 4" and has a subtle texture to it. It's a simple card, but it took ages to decide where to put everything - I've got a pile of cheap paper in the bin - all with layouts that didn't quite work!
And I'm also going to submit this to Less is More - LIM33 - Anything CAS Goes 1,000 challenge - at the time of typing this there are 545 entries. The deadline for LIM is 10pm on Friday 23rd October - so there's still time to get some cards made for this challenge - but I'm not sure whether it's going to reach 1,000 entries!! But this is one more for now!
Before I sign off for the evening - I must share with you the lovely card that I got from Gay (Mustavecoffee) - it arrived today. Gay won my Blogoversary Candy earlier this month - and she made me a super card - the birds are so sweet! Oh yes, Gay was also kind enough to enclose a little pack stuffed with goodies - which will appear soon!
Thanks Gay - this is lovely!
And that's all for now - I'm off to play in my craft room - still have to finish Kathryn's thank you cards, and play with a couple of challenges too. See you tomorrow!
