LOTV 'Inspirational Sentiments' in Graphic 45 papers with Tim Holtz bookplate & Frantage

Morning all & today I have abother card I made for LOTV with their 'Inspirational Sentiment' stamps. I really love these quotes, the words are great & they look fab too.
To make the fan flower, cut a strip of paper 12x1.5", then fold alternatively at 1cm invervals. Glue the 2 ends together then form into a flat shape & glue onto a scrap piece of card.
To decorate the Tim Holtz metal bookplate, heat with a heat tool and apply blue Frantage, add several layers as desired. I also added some to the edge of the oval die cut and the folded flower using a Versa-Mark ink pad.
Flowers are kort & godt & white spray from Live & Love Crafts.
Thanks for looking!
