Rose, You’re The Best

That’s right. Two posts in one day! Wow! I’m on a roll!

Well, it’s storming here and it’s sparked my creativity actually.

The minute this color challenge came out from Create with Connie and Mary I was drawn to it.

It also racked my brain. It’s spring. These are fall colors to me. So, just how to lighten these colors up? I created several samples that just did not cut it.

But, alas. I combined this sketch from Can You Case It

CYCI#110

Nice, simple, my style sketch! That’s what I needed.

And. Finally. Something I was happy with. Under the wire.

Nice, right? I debated about photographing it with my kraft paper. I decide to forego it.

I started with a small piece of Whisper White card stock and used the very first Paper Pumpkin background stamp to make the flower base in the two colors, Hello Honey and Cajun Craze. I stamped each about three times to use all the ink and to give varying color here.

I adhered the Rose Die Cut over that and simply cut it out around the black edge. Quite easy. And, you know how much I love fussy cutting!

Then I just went according to the sketch.

I love it! It may even make the Card Buffet this weekend!

I’d love to hear read what you think!

Happy Stampin’
