Designing D.I.V.A.S. Challenge

It is my turn to host the challenge for the Designing D.I.V.A.S. blogging group. What a wonderful group of ladies! I enjoy this group so much. I think we still have a spot available in the group if you are looking to make some great friends with a talented group of ladies. You can go here to post that you are interested.

The challenge is to make a card with a sentiment or word art as your focal point. Here is my sample.
I started with Pure Poppy cardstock and stamped Background Basics: Text Style in Versamark. I printed the sentiment off the computer after designing it in Photoshop. I first printed out the sentiment on plain printer paper and then taped a piece of Rustic Cream cardstock over the print and re-printed. I then cut it out with a Labels Two die. The patterned paper is Autumn Abundance and was used on the background as well as the punched flower. I think everything else is self-explanatory. I will post the supplies I used at the end of this post as usual.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day.

This is so beautiful and elegant. I like how you did the sentiment on the computer. That is one of my favorite things to do too.
