Double D Challenge Quote/ Sentiment

Today is the first day of the new challenge at Double D Challenge Blog, and it is all about quotes and sentiments. Diane gave us this inspirational mood board. As you can see, the quote or sentiment is the focal image in each case so that is what I tried to do on my card. 

I have so many wonderful quotes and I don't use them enough. In fact, this is the first time this stamp has seen ink.  I stamped it in Versamark and embossed it in gold, and sponged a little ink around it.  

 I cut a rectangle out of the center of  a piece of white card stock and a smaller rectangle from the center of  a piece of black card stock and layered them together to make a frame.  I placed the quote behind the layered frame.  Lately, I have liked framing around a frame on the top of my card so that is what I did here with a Gina Marie  scalloped frame. 

I always keep a stash of flowers around so I pulled chose some flowers and leaves. The flowers are Ariana Blossoms by Heartfelt Creations and the little bird is from Frantic Stamper. I decided to add a little gold embossing powder to the flowers, bird and leaves.... not quite sure how I feel about that idea. I put my finished panel on a black card base.

The prize for this challenge is quite appropriate, don't you think?
