Sentiments for a challenge

My local craft shop has set a difficult ( for me ) challenge of making the words the focal point of the card. 
Although I use sentiments all the time this took me out of my comfort zone.

The colours are much stronger in RL - they look a bit washed out here

Clarity stamps word stamp
Nitwits paper
Textured card
Shapeabilities pendant die - Fleur de lis ( yellow card spritzed with Glimmer mist )
Sizzix decorative corners die

Just Tracy's - sentiments ( it's only words )


  1. Nice work - turns out you may be out of your normal zone but it doesn't look uncomfortable!! I have more text stamps than anything and am often challenged to make a card without a text on the front...I find it very hard!!

  2. Wow that is a great sentiment and very true! Love your corners and the frame, its gorgeous! Thanks so much for joining us at Just Tracys. Jill

  3. You've done a great job - especially as you've worked out of your comfort zone. Thanks for joining in with the Just Tracy's challenge.
