Let's Get Sentimental with Crafty Ribbons

Good morning to you all

Today is the first challenge of 2015 over at

where our lovely Lynsey has chosen the theme of

Let's Get Sentimental

so here is my first 2015 inspirational piece for the Crafty Ribbons Challenge

I made a Mother's Day Card

I used an embossing folder and distressed the edges in TH Peeled Paint distress ink.  I used my foam pads to layer up those gorgeous fancy oval dies.  The larger of the dies I left in the die and embossed it with Swiss dots to allow me to use the indentations to place a tiny rhinestone in each, great spacing technique. I distressed the smaller oval whilst in the die to frame the sentiment softly.  I wrapped the triple layer triple sized bow around the sides of the card and finished off with a rhinestone heart button and some rhinestone flourishes.

I would like to enter the following challenges

Card Mania - Make it Sparkle
Craft-Dee Bowz - Anything Goes with hand made bow
Through the Purple Haze - Anything Goes
Simon Wednesday - Something New (New way of creating cards for me anyway)
