A "Nothing" Challenge lol

Hello everyone...don't fall off your seats, this is my second post this week!!!  I actually found a little time to play in The Outlawz Greeting challenge, which is to honour National Nothing Day! by using nothing on your project but your sentiment and an embellishment. Not that easy for me lol

Here's what I came up with:


And LOOK...NO colouring to be seen LOL!!!  I've used heavy weight Antique Gold CS for the base card and a gorgeous specialty DP from a Kaiser 6" paper pad for the background. Can't see it in the photo but the 'lace' across the top is embossed...so pretty IRL. My embellie is a Spellbinders die cut frame with a handmade paper flower. The sentiment is an SU stamp from my favourite sentiment set.

I'm addicted to these handmade flowers now lol  I have to stop myself putting one on every project :) This one was made from Penny Duncan's grungy Rose cut file and the spiky flower from SU Boho Blossoms punch for the centre. I've inked the edges before assembling, then liberally sprayed with gold shimmer mist when finished.

Thanks for looking....have a wonderful day :)
