Carol's sketch fun 16 & Creatalicious 3

Not my usual style this one, but I have a box of cards for people to buy at hubby's work, and I do try to send all different ones in so there's something for everyone. So I thought I'd make one based around a sweet sentiment instead of a cute image for once!

I've followed the sketch at Carol's Sketch Fun and I'm also entering this one for Creatalicious as I've followed their rules for this challenge - to use only scrap dp (can use new cardstock) and handmade flowers.

Cardstock is DCWV, as is the scrap of spotty paper - it's actually cut from a DCWV card blank that I ruined lol, at least it hasn't gone to waste! The flower was made using a woodware daisy punch, with a button and thread centre. I've sanded all the cardstock a bit, including the flower. The border was made with the Martha Stewart scallop dot punch, although I've covered up part of the design because I just wanted to show the edge of the scallops. The sentiment is a Paper Make Up one that I bought from Quixotic Paperie.
