I realised yesterday that a friend of mine has a birthday this coming week and that any card I make is going to be late! I made one anyway using a couple of challenges:
Stamps: PTI - The Sweet Life, Movers & Shakers Sentiments
Inks: Stampin' Up! - So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Old Olive; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Dies: PTI - Sweet Life
Accessories: Card from stash
I really like this sketch - so many possibilities. My original thought was a Christmas card, but this group of gorgeous roses also works. It's a three step stamp from Papertrey Ink. I cut out the base layer with the coordinating die and then stamped, in order, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango. I added a few leaves (to which I added just a touch of green) and finished off with a bold greeting on the outside of the card and the tagline inside. I also added another group of roses on the inside.
The card is in the post and will hopefully arrive within the week!! I really must remember that it takes up to 10 days for cards to get to the UK!!!!
I've been busy cataloguing my new stamps - it's a mammoth task as I've left it for a while. But it really is worth the effort. I think I'll be finished later today and then I really do have to get a shift on and finish my Christmas cards. That's all for now. See you soon.
