Charisma #48 - Sketch with a twist

Welcome to this weeks challenge at Charisma! This time, we want to see you use our sketch with a twist - the twist being that a sentiment or verse is the main focus rather than an image!
We are sponsored by the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp, who are offering a $20 voucher to one winner!


And Meljens Designs, who are giving one lucky person 4 digis of their choice!!


For my project this week I've used a lovely sentiment which was a freebie a while ago from Raindrop Echo Designs. I've cut this out using Nesties lablels 8 and inked the edges with DI's in Antique Linen, Tea Dye and just a touch of Walnut Stain. The circle behind the sentiment is embossed with Music notes cuttlebug folder. The smaller background square is made with a stamp from Dimension Fourth, using Tea Dye DI's and distressing the edges with Peeled Paint DIs. The larger background square is K&Co paper and the corners are made with Sizzix dies. Ribbon is from stash.
