I'm sorry to have been MIA from the blogosphere, but I'm back!
For my little share today, I used a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. Here it is:
I've been all about bright colors lately. So for this card, I flipped the sketch sideways and used Honey Cardstock for my base. I cut two strips of Lagoon Cardstock and edged them with my deco scallop border punch. The black and white paper is from the For Always collection. (The black border is one of the zip strips off the top of the paper. I love that every part of these papers are usable!) For the roses, I stamped the large and medium backgrounds in Honey Exclusive Ink using the 2nd generation stamping technique. I then stamped the shadows using Ruby Exclusive Ink. (I think Cranberry might be a little brighter, so I'll try that next time.) I popped the largest rose up a little using dimensional adhesive. The leaves are stamped in Pear Exclusive Ink and the veins are stamped in Lagoon. The sentiment is stamped in Lagoon Exclusive Ink on White Daisy Cardstock. I edged it with a fancy corner rounder I have, and then added a little Lagoon bling. I thought about using pearls on the boarder, but decided to use a white gel pen instead.
Here is the inside:
I love this sentiment! I added a piece of White Daisy Cardstock to the inside and stamped the sentiment in Lagoon Exclusive Ink to match the front.
Here are a couple of close-ups:
And here is the front, once again:
I hope you enjoyed my bright little roses. Remember, Floral Happiness can be yours for $5 with any qualifying order of $50 or more, or you can purchase it on its own for $17.95. It is available through 31 March.
