ABC Challenges - J for 'Just as you Like'

Hello everyone and wishing a very happy Tuesday to you all.  

Well its the 15th of the month folks so its time for another new challenge over ABC Challenges and we have moved on to the letter J so that is J for Just as you Like (anything goes) and we are being sponsored by both Marianne Designs and The Ribbon Girl for this challenge.

Okay so my creation this time is something a little bit different.  I've used the new Whimsy Mini Chalkboard sentiments set by Simonne Clay and as soon as I saw these I knew I wanted to make a mini chalkboard so that's what I did and so love the finished card.

Flowers:  The Ribbon Girl and Wild Orchid Crafts

I inked up the sentiment with white ink and then heat embossed with some sparkly embossing powder.  I made the pennant from the 'Celebration Pennants' sentiment set and just stamped it on to pattered paper and cut it out.  I then added a few flowers and some black foliage using a die from the new Whimsy Garden Flower dies set which I love and is so delicate looking and my card was finished.

A closer look at the fab sentiment.  This set is so useful there's a little bit of everything in there for you from Birthday to Halloween.

Okay that's all from me today peeps.  Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by it is very much appreciated.  Enjoy your day and happy crafting my lovelies.

Take care.
