They will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing 

The winners will be announced on Friday, March 23rd on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.  Good luck!  (P.S. I like comments here, too!!!)

For this project, I chose the A Way With Words Flourished Oval Frame.  And I was itching to play more with my Distress Oxides! I completed the framed sentiment with Susan Tierney-Cockburn's rose buds from Garden Rose 2.  Did you know that all the quotes from the A Bit of Fragrance Collection come from Susan?  I just lent my hand (literally) to the endeavour!

Here is how you can make this card!

I'd love to use the Entwined Egg die as a frame on an Easter card!

Suzanne, this is so elegant and beautiful. I missed it before now. Good thing I get the email notices and eventually get around to opening them. That was interesting about Susan and the quotes. I love these rosebuds!
