PTI ~ Make-It Monday ~ Sentiment Strip Grounding

Hello friends~ I finally found time in my craft room this week to play along with PTI's Make-It Monday Challenge.  Lexi has a great video about using sentiment strips as a grounding point for images.  I love her CAS style and using this design technique.
I used Bowl of Sunshine and a Second Helping of Sunshine for this card.  I added a candle from WPlus9's Merry & Bright and the sentiment is from Twig Wreath.  I stamped the sentiment so crooked on the banner, it bugs me!  It looked straight when I was stamping it (grrrr.....).  And do you notice the second white stitched panel?  That's because I tried to stamp a background like Lexi did on her card, behind the bowl of apples and it didn't stamp completely.  When I tried to re-stamp it I made even more of a mess.  I think my mojo is suffering from heat exhaustion from all this heat and humidity. Oh well, it's still kind of a cute card, crooked sentiment and all.

Thanks for stopping by!
Blessings~ Birgit

  4. This is so cute, especially the color combination you used with just a hint of gingham paper. The card looks great - no one notices our "mistakes" unless we point them out. We are our own worst critics!
