No images, just words....

(Click here for the goodie giveaway!)

Good morning!  It's time for another challenge from Ruby's Rainbow; this fortnight my teamie, Silvi, has chosen the theme of "No images, just words".  Sounds fun, right?!

I thought this was a great opportunity to use a set from MFT called Vertical Greetings II; it really has some neat sayings.  I did a bit of dry embossing and distressing, then embellished with ribbon, a felt flower and Swarovski crystals.

Sentiment: MFT Vertical Greetings II
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, Smokey Shadow, and Raspberry Fizz, My Mind's Eye DP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Embellies: Gray Grosgrain Ribbon (my stash), Swarovski Flatback Crystals in "Black Diamond" and "Fuchsia"
Extras: Spellbinder's Nestabilities, Cuttlebug "Bit of Paisley" Embossing Folder, PTI Raspberry Fizz and Smokey Shadow Felt, MFT Royal Rose Die-namics, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will stop on over to the Ruby's Rainbow blog and check out the wonderful creations.  I would love to see what sentiment you will choose....

I am also entering my card in the following challenges:

Catered Crop: No Stress To Distress
Craft Your Passion: Emboss It
Crafty Sentiments: Let's Sparkle
Cute Card Thursday: Bling It Up
Fashionable Stamping Challenge: Anything Floral/Handmade Flowers
Joanna Sheen: Totally Sentimental
Love To Create: Hand Made Flowers
Party Time Tuesdays: Anything Goes
Shopping Our Stash: Use Your Favorite Things (pink, and Swarovski crystals)
Use It Tuesday: Use That Ribbon (gray grosgrain ribbon, and Swarovski crystals)
Sketch is from Skipping Stones Design (challenge closed)

That is a beautiful sentiment and so true! When the dogs are out walking ME, I have to remind myself to look at everything around me and enjoy the fresh air, instead of worrying about having my arm pulled out of the socket LOL!

That reminds me a teeny bit of Ferris Bueller - if you don't stop & look around, you're gonna miss it! I love the paper you chose & that bloom is LOVELY!
