ROSES


This card is a 5.5x11 top fold card. I stamped the roses with CTMH Thinking of You Stamp Set. SU's Pretty and Pink Ink was used for the light color and Pink Passion Ink for the deeper color of the roses. English Ivy Ink and Pretty and Green Ink from CTMH were used to stamp the stems.

Talk about fun, yesterday I received part of my Nestibilities order which included the long rectangle dies. They are wonderful and I can't wait to get more. The pink scalloped border, along with the green card stock really highlights the stamped flowers.

My May Arts Ribbon order also arrived and I now have that beautiful sheer ribbon that Sharon Johnson talks so much about. And, she is right... it is wonderful! SU's ribbon punch makes it so easy to thread the ribbon and then a knot.

The two butterflies are cut at 1 1/2 inches and 2 inches on my Cricut. The Home Accents Cartridge contains this butterfly and I find myself going back to that one a lot as I love all the cut out details on it. For some extra pizazz, two crystals were added to the back of the butterflies. I added some brads to the corners after I used the Ticket Punch from SU to spice it up just a bit more.
