Embracing the alphabet for my double dare

This week's Double Dare Challenge was from me! I challenged everyone to use the alphabet someway, somehow on their card, no rules about color, layout or which letters to use -just use the alphabet. I was inspired by my hugs stash of chipboard letters. I used some from my Cosmo Cricket collection. The flowers in this paper coordinates with the set Embrace Life really well, so I went with that. I used Julee's Mojo46 sketch for this card. I designed this card around the word LOVE. I tried LIFE, but felt the Embrace Life flowers lended more towards love.

Today I bought a decent watercolor brush (Kiji) to give my watercolor crayons one LAST try before selling them on EBay, and you know what? I like them!! I watercolored all the images on this card. I need a bit more practise, but I am pleased that my expensive purchase last year won't go to waste! The Sentiment panel is up on dimensionals as is the center circle.

Card Deets:
Stamps – Embrace Life
Paper - Ruby Red, Cosmo Cricket (from the huge QVC kit)
Accessories - Nesties, circle punches, gold brads
