FIRST DT CARD FOR SENTIMENTAL SUNDAYS!

I am so happy to be sharing my first Sentimental Sundays DT card - hope you like it.
The challenge this week is to work with  a beautiful sketch by DT member, Dorcas. You can use any theme you wish, as long as you add a sentiment too!
If you click on the link above you will find full details, fab.inspiration from the DT, and digi freebies too!  
If you are looking for more digi sentiments, you can find a great selection at Raindrop Echo Designs, at  http://www.whimsystamps.com/ .
****
I am also entering this card into the following challenges:-
Crafty Cardmakers - Stitching.  
Crazy4Challenges - A square card
Soooooo - onto the card recipe!!
Blue BP - BG Granola.The stamped border on the left (and on the dark brown strip) is the Very Vintage "Stampin Around" wheel from SU - a new toy and I love it!  The stamped vintage image is Monsieur and Madame from Inkadinkado (an old favourite) inked in Coffee Archival and very lightly coloured with Copics. The Rose panel is a piece of BG Periphery, again with a light touch of Copics B93 on the petals.
Moonlight Glimmer Mist was spritzed over the BP, the main image, and the paper Rose. Difficult to see the glimmer though!  All edges inked with Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks.  Machine stitching and lace to finish, and of course a Sentiment -this one is from a beautiful digi set by Raindrop Echo Designs at Whimsy Stamps.
Look forward to seeing your wonderful creations!
Have a great weekend.........
