LOC Rosy Hue

Who among us doesn't love roses!?!  They are my favourite flowers - how could I not love the Layers of Color Vintage Rose art stamp set - it is divine!! 

I have been on a run of making card that are quick and easy - as I need to build up my supplies for the Boutiques where I sell them - I felt a slight panic when I saw how low they are getting - so out came the Vintage Rose art stamp set.

I inked it with ink pads, adding the pink to the centre of the image and dabbing green around the edges - it is not an exact form of colouring but I do like the way it turns out - works very well with vintage or shabby chic!

The ribbon is from a divine birthday RAK that I received as I was creating this card - don't you just love the postal system - it made my birthday last over a month!  LOL!  It is totally gorgeous and I will try and find out where it is from.  The dyed Seam Binding was also part of the RAK - delish!!  The brad has been threaded through a pearl slider/buckle to make it more feminine - what do you think!

The sentiment is from the Layers of Color Sent With Love art stamp set, I love this sentiment - it is a great feeling to get a card 'just because....'  The divine Rose Embossing is a RAK from my Mum, who ran some through her Cuttlebug for me - I love this Embossing Folder and have discovered it was a Limited Edition - so I cannot get it now - if you see it somewhere - please let me know - I would appreciate that so much!

  30. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to
    see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has
    83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
