Less is more Week 10 One Layer Challenge Sentiment

Well here we are again, LIM Saturdays come round very quickly! I spent all afternoon at Ally Pally for the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking fair and wondered as I SPENT my way around whether I would find a nice sentiment stamp. No luck I'm afraid so it's back to the computer to generate my sentiment :)
In case it's not too clear in the photo it says:
Just like the butterfly you too will awaken in your own time
I used Scriptina font and made it wander across the card as a butterfly might! I stamped the butterfly and used a waterbrush to colour it and added 2 gems and a little sparkle! Hope that's ok Mandi & Chrissie?
Thanks for looking :)


ps. To make my sentiment dance I use Serif's Craft Artist and the text options allow you to manipulate the text into different shapes or paths. It's absolutely brilliant for cardmaking and scrapbooking and they do have a freebie version that you can download to play with.

I love how you have the sentiment curved across the card. How did you do that? What program do you use? The butterfly is just awesome! Fabulous card!
