WPlus9 Sponsors: CARDS Blog Challenge

Hi there! I'm back again! And with more WPlus9 goodies! WPlus9 is sponsoring the CARDS Blog Challenge for February. So we're inviting you to come along and play with us! 

Here's the sketch for the challenge.

I have to admit it was a little tricky. If you know me by now, you'll know that if I find something tricky, I'll probably end up changing it up a bit. So I did just that! :)

I didn't have the scalloped square die that the sketch had. So I just chose to keep it simple with a square and rounded the corners of the inner cardstock panel. Since I really enjoyed using the Embroidered Bouquet so much, I used it in place of the stars on the sketch.

And for the center with the sentiment, I used Lacey Layers in different colors and layers.
The sentiment is from Written on Ribbon and the banner die is from Banner Trio Die. Inks used are all Hero Arts Shadow Inks! :)

So if you have some crafty time set aside, please come and join us over at the CARDS Blog Challenge! Thanks for stopping by today! I'll see you all again! :)
