Confucius Says... Go With All Your Heart

Hi all, hope you are all well. Thank you for stopping by.

Today I have a card for the Flourishes 'Timeless Tuesday Challenge'. Denise is the host this week and she has asked us to be sentimental and create a card with a sentiment.  That wasn't hard for me, as I love quotes and sentiments on the fronts of my cards.  I chose the beautiful words of Confucius. I love this sentiment, which is from the Flourishes - 'Cherry Blossoms' set of stamps...
I have embossed my base card with Spellbinders M-Bossabilities then added the Spellbinders die from the Lattice Motifs set. I laid that over a piece of blue card stock. I stamped my sentiment onto an oval Spellbinder die and popped it up with some silicone glue.  To finish I added some blue organza ribbon, a hand crafted flower with pearl centre, and two Marianne leaf flourishes.
I've been really busy this week. I've been making commission cards for kids to give to their teachers, plus three family birthday cards. Hopefully by next week things will have calmed down a bit.

Ingredients ...
Flourishes -  Sentiment from Cherry Blossoms set.
Spellbinders - Lattice Motif and Oval dies  
                      M-Bossabilities - Elegance
Marianne Dies - Open Flower Classic
25mm Blue Organza Ribbon from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
White and blue card stock throughout.                   

Enjoy a lovely weekend!
