Inkspirations Challenge #61 - Laugh, Love, Create....

Well hello, I hope everyone has had a fantastic week.  Keesh has another wonderful sketch for you today & you must, must, must check out the awesome inspiration pieces from the DT.  Here's the sketch:-

I have chosen to make a little decor piece this week & have used my take on the "live, laugh, love" quote.  I am ecstatic about how this little baby turned out & it makes me smile every time I look at it.  Hopefully the recipient will like it half as much.  :)

I've used a gorgeous Country Road, 3D frame, adding a Regal Rose Mat just under the glass.  The flower has had each petal individually stamped, using the rock 'n' roll technique.  They have then been coated in glue & covered in dazzling diamonds.  Once I had them assembled into a flower shape, I added a cute, clear pink button & thread.  It's very sparkly.  :)

The letters were die-cut on my Robo:-

I scalloped the bottom edge of the white panel & added cute little pearls.

Here are the links so you can play along & leave the DT some comment love:-

Hi Helen,

I love this, it is so bright and cheery. The rock 'n rolled petals with all the gorgeous sparkle is just stunning. I had to stock up on that DSP before it retired as I love the colours (me, who used to hate orange!).

Thank you for all your lovely, encouraging, blog comments. I truly value every comment, especially coming from someone so talented as yourself!!!
