ABC Challenges - Q for Quotation

Hi everyone and Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! We are off into town soon to watch the parade and have some lunch out. My 6yr old is participating in the parade with his school so there is a lot of excitement, lol.

Today I am sharing my first DT card for ABC Challenges :) 

The theme is Q is for Quotation and we are being sponsored by Daisy May Designs.

My quotation is from Tim Holtz's 'Good Thoughts'. I stamped it using Rich Cocoa Momento ink and cut it out using the curved rectangle nestabilities. I distressed the background with Brushed Cordoroy, edged with Vintage Photo and added stickles to the outline.

I also added stickles to the heart and when they had dried I applied a layer of crackle accents. Love the effect it created.

The butterfly is punched using my x-cut 3D punch. More stickles on the butterfly and flowers. The lace is another ebay find :)

Close-up of the quotation...

and another view just for good measure, lol.

Papers: Cosmo Cricket "Earth Love"
Sentiment: Tim Holtz
Tools: MS Doily punch, X-cut 3D Butterfly punch, McGill Pine Leaf Punch
TH Distress Inks, Stickles, Curved Rectangle Nestabilities, Cuttlebug

Lace: Ebay

Thanks so much for visiting me today, please do hop over to my teamies blogs to see their wonderful work. 
Have a wondeful St. Patrick's Day and HAPPY CRAFTING :)
