My favourite quote


I made this plaque to take to the Birthday BBQ on Saturday. I have always loved this sentiment as I htink it says so much about life so when I saw it is now a stamp at Inkylicious I just had to buy it. I will definitely be using it on some scrapbook layouts.

I had a lot of fun making this. My base was a wooden plaque I bought in America. The gorgeous script ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons. I attach it with strong glue at the back and then cover the back with paper, which is Craftwork Cards Time Flies. The dies are all Marianne and the birdhouse die comes with a matching stamp. There is also a little butterfly stamp which I randomly stamped onto the backing paper. I used various Distress Inks around the edg and on the diecuts. I finished with a wooden flower also coloured with Distress Inks.
