Fussy and Fancy Challenge #153 Words ... it's all about the sentiment

I am very happy and excited to be hosting Fussy and Fancy Challenge #153. My favourite cards to receive have words on the front so I have chosen 'Words.... It's all about the Sentiment' as my theme.
I have chosen one of my favourite Clarity sentiments:

Here is the finished card:

I stamped the sentiment onto this pretty  new Spellbinders diecut mat, I also cut a second diecut in charcoal card and slightly offset it to make a shadow. The lilac embellishment was made using Sheena Duncan's Perfect Partners .... stamps and matching dies, I loved decoupaging it up to form a 3d embellishment. The pansy is a new Sue Wilson die.
Hope you will join us and enter this challenge, it's very easy you can find more details here . I know everyone is busy preparing for Christmas right now, just take a little time out to create a card, tag, piece of altered art and join in the fun, I look forward to seeing your creations and visiting your blogs. Everyone has an equal chance of winning whatever your skill as the choice is made randomly and I get to choose my top5 .... that is going to be really tough for me.
Right better dash and get off to bed , but I have just had a thought ... there is only time for one more challenge after this one .... Where did 2015 go to??? Night Night, sleep tight xxAnnie
