Fuchsias for Mother's Day


It's time for another Word Art Wednesday Challenge.
 Our sponsor  this time is  Pink and Main who are most generously providing a  voucher for the winner valued at over $25.

Just before I received my files for May, I saw some vintage floral images with a label included over at Graphic's Fairy, and instantly thought using these for Word Art Wednesday!

I was very pleased to be able to get the Scripture  graphic sized and overlaid into this image!

I distressed the edges of the image, and also included a torn section and rolled the edges of that back, as well as one corner, and placed washi behind them for interest

A wee bow in a shiny ribbon under the scripture and some white sequins finished the outside of the card

This inside was stamped with a now discontinued Sweet'n'Sassy quote, and brushed with Bundled Sage DI to give a halo effect.

What a lovely card! I love the image/coloring/layout. That curled edge with the "subtle surprise" underneath is oh-so-clever! The bible verse is beautiful and that little white bow is perfect! Thanks again for entering in the JDS Blog Challenge for May! Good Luck and Stay Safe!

That's lovely. Fuchsias actually remind me of Dad not Mum. He loved them and grew lots of varieties. Us children got in trouble when the urge to 'pop' the buds got the better of us! Kate x said...
