It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Lynn McAuley our challenge hostess for the month, finishes off the month with one last challenge.
The rose is the national flower for June while the pearl is June’s gemstone. Lynn is asking the CCEE Stampers to include both of these beauties on their card for this week’s CCEE Challenge!
I was asked recently if I would make a "Miss You/Thinking of You" card for a friend to send to a mutual friend. As I knew I needed to make my rose themed card, it was an easier request to fulfill.
I pulled out my Pinkfresh Studio Garden Roses Stamp, die and stencil set to create the roses on my card. I used inks from Catherine Pooler Designs to colour the roses.
For the background of my card I used my new Anna Griffin Matelasse Slimline Embossing Folder. I have been after this embossing folder for ages, but up until now it has been impossible to get sent to Australia. When I saw it was for sale on the Scrapbook.Com website I had to order it immediately. It does come in a set of 4 Slimline Embossing Folders.
I added the "Miss You" sentiment to the right side of the card using Honey Bee Stamps Miss You Big Time Stamp/die set.
To finish my card I added some Matte Silver Metallic Pearls which I almost forgot.
For the inside of my card, I added a few more roses around the edges of my card. I also added the "Thinking of You" sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps Thinking of You Big Time stamp set.
