Lilac Romantic wild roses
Well what ever germs that have infected me have really taken their toll, goodness me I felt rubbish yesterday, I finally managed to get up to help Paul make a beef stir fry for tea, while I was up I thought that I really should get a card put together for tomorrows blog, so here it is, I had to keep going for a lie down and finally finished at about 10pm, I hope you think its worth it!
I used my now very favourite stamp set Justrite Romantic Wild Roses, this time I used Memento Lulu Lavender and Grape Jelly ink pads and Mowed lawn distress marker and New Sprout Memento ink for the stems, I stamped a few flowers and Cut them out with Californian Collection Dies from Creative Expressions, I used two of the Matting Basics to make the frame and a the largest
Decorative Die for the darker purple decorative mat under the focal element, I then took an 8 x 8 card
and matted it with two contrasting shades of purple, I then took a square of white card and used the smaller stamps to create a matching back ground paper, using the same colours as the main image.
I then took some of the darker purple card and used to cut several Camellia dies to form the flower for the centre of my bow.
I stamped the 'Birthday wishes' onto a small strip of lilac card using the Grape Jelly memento ink and embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer Detail Clear embossing powder, I matted it onto some of the darker purple card and added it to the top corner of the card.
I then finished with the triple bow and a few pearls.
Well I am hoping that today, Cheryl is able to reconnect with us as she is sorely missed, she sends her love and hugs to you all and I did add last night but you may not have seen Michele, but Cheryl wanted me to wish you a very happy birthday!
Sam I hope after reading all the lovely comments about your gorgeous card, you can write off the negative comments you received, I think that someone was jealous of your skills!!
All being well, later this morning I will be going off to Pats house with Sue, bring on the lemsip!
Whatever you are all doing today have a great one,
love and hugs
