Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge - Let's Get Sentimental!

Hello my blogging friends!  Today Wild Orchid has a new challenge for you and the theme is 'Let's Get Sentimental".  All that means is use a sentiment with your card!  

We have two fab prizes up for grabs. The prize from Wild Orchid Crafts is 27 x 5 metre bundles of Seam Binding (one in each color) plus some beautiful  blooms, and Lili of the Valley are also sponsoring this week with a £10 voucher!!

My card today features the super cute Simply Sassy -Little Light of Mine from Sugar Nellie! The new sentiments from Lili of the Valley worked perfectly with her and her little candle I thought!
I colored this little cutie with distressed inks and the papers are from K&Co. called Classic K Bailey.  I used the adorable sketch from the Sugar Bowl, so I will be entering my card there.  Yippee! I'm entering a challenge!!!

I sewed all the edges and used my Magnolia swirl doohickey.

 I used the Lt. mocha Curly Wild Rose in the center with the 10mm lt. mocha open rose , 15mm cream open rose, 20 mm lt. mocha rose.  The leaves are an MS Pine Branch punch.

I would also like to let you know about all the wonderful new products that Wild Orchid Crafts will be carrying.  Be watching the website for these products:

  New colour hellebores, poppies and flat gardenias  (Yippee!!!!)
New Trellis Roses (OMG these are amazing) 
  The roses are coming in the soft muted vintage colours 
 Seam binding!!!  Will be in stock in the next few days.
    25mm Satin ribbon ... soon
  Gingham ribbon .... sooner than soon

EEEEEEK!!!! Do you see why I am so excited???!! They just keep coming out with the most fantastic things!!!
These are the new Trellis Roses!!!! Gorgeous!!!

  17. Hi Dena,
    I'm getting confused between e-mailing & commenting. While I've been admiring all your gorgeousness on your DT sites, but not been by to tell you how wonderful it all truly is. It's just awesome!!! Especially love this Sassy girl. I've not inked her up yet. I must give her some love & attention asap. Hope you're keeping well.
    Huge Hugs,
    Andie xx
