Shannon's Sentiments challenge, Getting all fussy

Good morning and welcome to this week's Shannon's Sentiments challenge.

This week we are using a technique called "fussy cutting".  If you've never done fussy cutting before, you're gonna love the look it gives to your crafting projects.  Fussy cutting is done by cutting out an image or images from scrapbook paper and placing it on your card or scrapbook page.  You can see I chose this lovely flower with swirls from a piece of  designer paper from paper studios Oops A Daisy collection.

I cut out the big flower and one small flower which I added to the center of the big one.  It's popped up using dimentionals.  I added a little glossy accents to the flower centers.

For the focal point I chose one of the fabulous sentiments from Shannon's Spring Time set and cut it out using my oval nestabilities and added some sponging to really show it's beauty.

For more inspiration be sure to check out what the other designers have in store for you.

Until next time, thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  TTFN

Hugs, Becky
