A superstar sentiment...

happy birthday

Happy Friday Eve! It's a super-happy day as Clearly Besotted's May release is available to purchase from 10pm UK time tonight! :D

I'm back today with one final project to celebrate the release and I couldn't resist inking up this stylish sentiment from the 'To You With Love' stamp set. You'll see that I've already inked up the stunning flower from this set on this card, so now it's time to let the sentiment of the set steal the spotlight!

The font of this sentiment had me wanting to embrace the fun chalkboard technique that was extremely popular a while back. I remember the craze kicking off from Betsy Veldman and was instantly taken with it then as I am now. You could take this one step further and even add colour to it, but I decided that colour wasn't required for this sentiment to shine. :)

As this sentiment is the main focal point, I kept the rest of the design pretty simple (no surprises there!) and added some touches of gold in the form of gold glitter Washi tape, a mini peg covered with the same Washi tape and some gorgeous gold foiled paper from the My Mind's Eye On Trend 2 paper pad. Black and gold: a classic, sophisticated colour combo I don't' think I'll ever tire of!

If you're not already come across here from Stephanie's, then what are you waiting for? Stephanie has the full reveal of the release for you to admire as well as the final projects from the rest of the super-talented Design Team so be sure to check it out! :)

Thanks so much for joining me this week for the sneak peeks of the new release. If you're busy shopping at Clearly Besotted tonight, I hope you manage to tick everything off your list!
