My Favourite Place In All The World Is Next To You...

Good morning, it's time for a new challenge at Allsorts and our theme this week has been chosen by the lovely Brenda and is 'It's all in the message'. So we'd like to see a sentiment or quote as the focal element. Our wonderful sponsor this week is Nicecrane.

So onto my DT card, I have made an anniversary card using a fabulous sentiment designed by StampArt Design. I love cards where the sentiment is the main thing. I made a frame using a leaf punch and lots of buttons. The card was an 'order' from my mum for my dad. I think they both liked it...

Paper - Wellington by Do Crafts
Sentiment - from the Love to Think of You set by StampArt Design from Whimsy Stamps
Sentiment tag - Craftwork Cards
Buttons, seam binding, pearl - stash
Other - La-La Land Crafts hearts banner die, oval Nestabilities die, Woodware leaf punch, kraft cardstock, brown chalk ink pad

Please do come and join us over at Allsorts this week for our challenge x

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Crafting with Dragonflies - Card for a Guy/Father's Day (this anniversary card was a request from my mum for my dad)
Deep Ocean - You Are My Sunshine
Aud Sentiments - Any Sentiment!
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Sister Act - Anything Goes

Hope you have a lovely weekend x
