New Challenge at Eclectic Ellapu

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you are having a lovely weekend, wherever you are.

This week over at Eclectic Ellapu, the new challenge is 'It's Sentimental', with the main focus being on the sentiment.

This is the card I made:

I used some beautiful Japanese inspired papers, they are so lovely, very iridescent and shimmery.

I used a tag, and layered it behind and on top with the sentiment. I used the wonderful Indigo Blu stamp range, and stamped the sentiment onto some cream torn paper in brown ink.

I used this beautiful butterfly charm, attached it through the twine on the butterfly, and used a sticker for the roses. The edging I found at the bottom of a paper pack, thought it looked nice and also added a bit of texture to the card!
These flat back pearls (? I'm not sure if that is what they're called!) just finished off the corner.
Hope you like the card, why not give the challenge a go?

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
2 Sisters - Sketch
A Gem of a Challenge - Use two backing papers
Simply Less is More - Use a Rubber stamp
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes (closed)

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a wonderful day :)
