Tuesday Throwdown

Hello my friends, I am playing today in a challenge site that is one that I may never have been in before but the challenge to use a non stamped sentiment and the fact that the challenge at Tuesday Throwdown is being sponsored this week by McMahon Five ,  just pulled me in. I won a gift certificate earlier this summer from McMahon Five and loved all of the goodies that I was able to buy. I created my card using some of the digital paper and the image that I purchased which is designed by Shawnee Arnold in their Studio 313 section. I love these papers and they always make me smile when I use them. I layered the "cherry blossoms and butterflies" on top of the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis die after cutting it out with the Labels 18. My sentiment is a ticket from the set "Variety Sayings" from Paper Cupcakes  which I tied with DMC floss to the die.

For the inside, I used a sentiment that is from the set "The poetry of birds" which is also from McMahon Five. Hope you will check out all of these, and maybe you will find something you love as well. I  wish you all a wonderful Sunday and a great week ahead.

Card Details:
Paper: Spring blossoms, McMahon Five, Rubber Cottage
Ink: Tim Holtz distress inks
Other: Spellbinders labels 18, fleur de lis, scalloped rectangles, dmc floss, ribbon-Stampin' Up
