Love You Rose

Anyone who walked into my scrap space would get a very mixed message, if they could see through the clutter that is.  Is it Christmas or Valentine's Day?  I'm still doing holiday themed layouts and I've made a few Valentine's Day cards for Operation Write Home.  The deadline for shipping those is in early January so not much time to pause between holidays.

I made this card last week for the card sketch challenge (#312) at Splitcoaststampers.  I've been really challenged to hop from Christmas trees and snowmen over to hearts so I decided to do a floral theme.  Seemed an easier transition.

Project Notes:
  • The main rose is colored with a combo of SU! markers and watercolor crayons.  Watercolor crayons always come out lighter so there is even some Ruby Red mixed in with these corals and light pinks.  
  • I used my new EK Success edge punch on this one.  It just jumped into my hands one day when I was walking through Hobby Lobby and not wanting to be a shoplifter I had to buy it. :-)  In addition to the bracket shaped edge it embosses.  Works great with these heavy Papertrey Ink cardstock.
  • The background roses are embossed after stamping them on some SU! Sweet Pea paper.  
Thanks for visiting today!
