Welcome to virtual musical filled Create with Connie and Mary Saturday blog hop!
Our theme this week features 80’s some titles again! This week, “Every Rose Has It’s Thorns”, featuring cards with flowers.
I literally am still singing this song as I create this post!!!
I went with this gorgeous Healing Hugs –
Only this time I used it for a beautiful birthday card! Simply changing the sentiment stamp changed the feel of the card. I used Perennial Birthday.
I initially inked up my stamp in Poppy Parade and stamped the random roses all as a background. I did the same for the leaves using Garden Green.
I went to create a single rose for a fussy cut focal point and realized my pad was a way old linen Poppy Parade pad! I must say, it made for a great softer background but changed I it to the new style pad for the bolder look in the flower.
I also fussy cut the leaves too. And, of course, the banner after I stamped it.
I put the panels askew and added the sentiment and I was done! I love it!! I think I’ll send this to my mom next week for her birthday.
