The sentiment is the star

Good morning everyone.

Happy Monday. Yes its off to my new school today. Very nervous but also excited too. No children in today - they will be back tomorrow and then the fun really will begin!

The Allsorts challenge this week is to use a sentiment as the focal point of the card and here is my entry - 

The sentiment I have used is a Clarity Stamp and I have stamped it onto white elegant satin card using Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder. I then cut the sentiment out using Spellbinder's Resplendent rectangles and inked whilst still in the die with tumbles glass distress ink. I then matted it onto the largest die in the set cut from teal centura pearl. The papers I have used are from the First Edition New Bloom paper pad. I matted the sentiment onto a paper from the pad and then layered that onto another piece of teal centura pearl. I fussy cut some flowers using papers from the pad and Spellbinder's anemone flower topper and added some pearls to the centre of the flowers. I then arranged the flowers onto the card as shown.

A close up of the sentiment which I think is very true don't you!

 I would like to enter this card into the following challenge -  - its all about the sentiment
