Just Living is Not Enough - Bonnie Garby Guest Designer

Hello there.  I'm Bonnie Garby from Make Time to Craft and I'm thrilled to be guest designing this month for Quietfire Design.  My card today features the new Just Living is not Enough stamp.  This is such a lovely sentiment.

I started with an A2 top-fold card base.  I stamped my sentiment on white cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx ink.  I die cut the sentiment using the Oval Stitch and Cut Tool Lge and matted it with the Oval Classic Large Stacker die, both from Cheery Lynn Designs.  
For the background, I cut a 4-1/2" x 6" piece of white cardstock and backed it with Stick-It adhesive.  I centered the Meriterranean Lace Rectangle Frame die from Cheery Lynn designs on the right side of the paper and cut it out.  I then adhered this die cut to a purple base and trimmed to 3-5/8" x 4-7/8".  Then I adhered that to another piece of purple cardstock and trimmed a small border.  
Next I ran a 4-1/2" long piece of 5/8" Delphinium Diamond Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon across the center of the card and adhered it to the back.  Then I cut a 4-1/4" long piece of 3/8" wide Purple and Green Confetti Dots Grosgrain Ribbon and dove-tailed the ends.  I adhered that to the top of the first ribbon strip.  Next I adhered a piece of white mulberry paper to the back of this panel and feathered the edges by wetting first with water and then tearing.  Then I adhered this to the base card.
Add the sentiment panel to the center of the card with foam squares to give it a little dimension.
Create the daisy flower with the Shasta Daisy die from Cheery Lynn Designs and add the Olive branches greenery to each side.

My beautiful bi-color, double-loop bow was created with two ribbon styles from my March Ribbon Club assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The theme for the March assortment is Spring and this assortment contains a variety of colors and styles that lend themselves to projects with a spring theme.  This bow was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0.
I just love creating cards around inspiring sentiments and Quietfire Design is the perfect place to find lots of wonderful sentiment stamps and other great papercrafting supplies.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you liked my card.
