It is time for the next challenge at Frilly and Funkie and the wonderful Sue is our hostess this time. She has chosen Let the words do the talking! as the name for this theme and describes it this way:
"I love to include meaningful sayings on my projects, sayings that speak to me and inspire me to do the things I do. What I would love to see on your projects for this challenge are the words and sayings that mean a lot to you and inspire you."
For this card I mixed papers from the Graphic 45 collection called A Ladies Diary with a sentiment from Wendy Vecchi and here is how I did it.
I started with some Wassau card stock for the blank. Then I started to add papers and embellishments, distressing with my scissors and inking with Vintage Photo Distress Ink as I went along. I added a full panel of the damask side of Timeless Memoir (I pretty well covered it with other stuff but it is there) and then a band from the polka dot side of Afternoon Tea. Next I cut the gorgeous lady from the paper called Ageless Beauty and added her on top. The word Timeless came from the sticker sheet in the collection.
I fussy cut two sets of each flower bouquet from A Moment in Time and layered them with foam dots for a little dimension. I also used a clock face from that page and tucked it behind the bouquet at the top. Next I added some postage stamps that I cut from the Ageless Beauty page. Then I added a tiny black brad to the top of the chipboard tag and adhered it to the clock.
I stamped the sentiment from Wendy's True Art set on a scrap of the card stock using Jet Black Archival Ink, added a strip of venise lace and a little chipboard button from the collection.
The following products used to create this card came from The Funkie Junkie Boutique:
