I am stubborn!

So I've never done this before, but this part of my personality (I'm a Leo) does surface every so often.  I am rather stubborn and so dislike to admit defeat to the point that I'm going to put another card into the Less is More challenge.
I truly disliked the cards I made the other day, so this evening I had a proper look through my computer files and found some Shabby Princess downloads from my scrapbooking days - I hit gold, there were sentiments in there!

There were five or so sentiments and I think, when I have more time, I will come back to this concept and try the other sentiments but something about this one just spoke to me.  I matched it up with a lovely Joanna Sheen stamp that came off a sheet of un-mounted stamps called Babies (I think) and made this card.

I much, much prefer it!  I couldn't put my finger on the reason why, it just seemed to me that it worked.

I am much happier now - I do so dislike showing cards I don't like. 

Thanks for your comments on my other cards, and Mandi - I know what you are saying about the better way to glitter the sentiment.  Unfortunately my Quickie Glue pen dried out on me and I binned it!

A happier Sarah

Great card! That sentiment works so well with the image, although they didn't seem an obvious choice to me. Your stubborness paid off, I Love it!

P.s. I ended up glittering with PVA and a cocktail stick (fiddly!!!)

This is lovely. A fab CAS card. I've seen a few this week with the sentiment on top of the image and love the effect. Something else to try out! x
