Sophie ~ wall hanging

Good Morning!

This month I decided to take one of my favorite sayings and put it on a wall hanging where I can see it everyday. An added bonus for me was using my new Sophie cartridge that I hadn't had a chance to play with yet.

I started out with the frame cut @ 11.25 using the doily feature, I cut it in green and again in chipboard for strength.

From the base layer I cut out the purple layer. For the pink flowers I also used the base layer using the shift key, but I laid it out on my gypsy and put it on the edge of my mat. That way I cut put some of it that I didn't want off the mat so it didn't all cut. I trimmed the pieces down when I was done cutting.

I cut a piece of pink paper at 6.5 X 6.5, a piece of purple at 6 X 6 and the computer generated saying at 5.5 X 5.5. I used green stickles on all four corners. I added violet Viva Decor pens for the flower centers and pink liquid pearls for the purple flourish centers.

I added two blue eyelet to each side and threaded some purple ribbon through to hang up on my wall.

Thanks for looking!
