Sending You Roses

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Baby Pink Card through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the Creative Expressions Wild Roses Embossing Folder.

I cut Sue' Wilson's Lattice Window Striplet out 3 times, cutting the plain dies out of Baby Pink Card and the decorative dies with their plain partner out of Chestnut Card.

I stamped the sentiment from John Lockwood's Scribble Rose Elements Stamp Set onto Baby Pink Card using Coffee Archival. I cut tit out using a die from Sue's Zoe Die Set. I cut the largest die in the set out of Baby Pink Card and the largest 2 dies together out of Chestnut Card. I glued the die cuts together and added my sentiment piece.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Pink/Brown Solid Centre Band Satin Ribbon. I cut a rose out of Baby Pink and Chestnut Card using Sue's Blushing Rose Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.
