Ellen Taylor - off this week
Jenny Gropp - You are here!

This is an A2 card and I created a little recessed frame for my image to sit in. The flourish  I used is part of the Heart Flourish Die, just without the heart portion. I'm suddenly obsessed with this die and can't seem to refrain from adding little flourishes to everything I make.

 I stamped the Small Rose Bouquet image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I created a little soft background using the Copics shown. I stamped the Days be Rosy sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black.

 I finished coloring the image using the Copics shown above. I die cut the Square Cut Out Border and added pieces from the die cut above and below the image strip. 


Here's the inside... I added a little portion of the stamp in the corner to tie everything together.

  11. What a beautiful card. I love how you colored the yellow around the roses. I love the little flourish. A friend sent me one in the mail because I don't have that die and I am hoarding it. I haven't found the right project yet to use it on. I can see why you would use it a lot. It look wonderful with the roses.
