Sentimental Sundays #62 - Anything Goes

Hey you sentimental fools! ;) It's time for another challenge over at Sentimental Sundays today, and this time we've got something real easy for ya!!

(plus a sentiment)

You have no excuse not to join in now, do you?! Heehee.

This time round, I decided to use some of my unloved thickers to create a sentiment. Then I realised why they were unloved.. because I hardly have enough letters to make a freakin' word!! HA! You'll see what I mean when you see the pictures!

I have used the adorable Chester from Pollycraft alongside a strip of paper from Cosmo Cricket - Social Club collection. To draw on more of the lovely tea green/bluey colour I have stamped a doily from WM in Sage Shadow ink. I have distressed the edges of my patterned paper, the inner circle and my image with Frayed Burlap DI. I have then added.. yeahhh, you know it.. some faux stitching using a brown fineliner. I can see me having to source a new one very soon!!

I have gone for something a little different this time round - a window card. I created the circle using a nestie and placed the image on the inside of the card to be peeking through. It was a very logistical process, I won't lie (LOL!!) But I really like the results. It's like a double whammy of Chester love!!

I have made the image panel a little more interesting by adding some accent stamps around the outside edge using Frayed Burlap DI along with some gem brads from Paperania.

To finish off the sentiment I added the word 'anytime' in Frayed Burlap DI to the inside of the card using my Studio G alpha stamps. A pretty neat friendship sort of card, well.. that's what I was thinking anyway! :)

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
× Tuesday Throwdown - Red, White and Blue
× Use it Tuesday - Red, White and Blue - I have used my unloved Thickers.
