'Sentimental September Challenge at Visible Image'

Hellooooooo :D

Oh wow it's September already! 
Summer (if you can call it that) is coming to an end :(
But on a plus side, the kids are back at school YEY!

So, September means a brand new challenge at Visible Image
This month is all about sentiments, so use any Visible Image verse or sentiment and be in with a chance of winning £20 to spend on stamps and the top 3 chosen by the team receive a blinkie.
* please remember NO DIGI'S allowed*
Enter HERE!

For my creation today I used the AWESOME verse called 'Hearts entwined' written by Helen Michelle from Visible Image.......
May I just take this opportunity to once again congratulate Watty (Mark) and Madge (Helen)
on their newly announced engagement.....wishing you both every happiness for your future :)
Don't forget my invite ;)

This is in fact their engagement card :D

I decided to do an easel card with a simple vintage look, the verse is the 'star' of the card so I don't feel it needs to be a busy card as it just retracts away from the focal point!

I have used some papers ( from J'adore) which is a bit unusual for me,  I have nothing against backing papers its just I prefer to make my own background with stamps or inks.
But for this occasion they suited perfectly.
I also used Aged Mahogany distress ink to give the edging vintage finish and wow Vanilla white embossing powder for the beautiful verse <3

For the base I used wow burgundy red embossing powder for the rose stamp and 'Love is forever' sentiment from the magnificent 'Love is Immortal' set and the flourish stamp I used as my border is from Jake Skates but the beautiful 'Grunge flourish' would also give the same effect ( AWESOME STAMP)...well they all are but I LOVE this one :D
To finish I add some roses and pearls, the verse and sentiment are raised on foam pads.

Hope you like it but most of all I hope Watty and Madge like it!

Join us over on our facebook group for all the latest news and creations :D

I hope our awesome DT will inspire you to enter the challenge this month for 'Sentimental September', pop on over and please have a looksy.

I'll be back on Tuesday for 'Soozie Tooseday' so see y'all then 
Much Love
