Everything Rosy?


Hello my friends.  So sorry I have been MIA but it has been such a busy time with no a Snippet of time to craft.  I did get time to play along with a few challenges today at Splitcoast.  One was the CAS challenge..a sketch and the other was a TLC Make Polka Dots which are kind of hard to see on my card but I added them onto the leaves.  Today is also the last day for the big challenges going on at Moxie Fab so I am entering this one in the Focal Point challenge.  The stamp set I used for the flower is from Stampin Up and the sentiment is from Stampotique.  Used Distress inks to colour the flowers and added the scoring and washi tape as well.
Hope you are having a great Monday....I am just so happy to have time to stamp.
Hope you can come back on Wednesday for the OLW as I am hosting this week.

Supplies:  stamps; Stampin Up Mixed Bouquet, Stampotique/ Distress inks/ Washi tape/ pearls/ pop dots

EDIT ADDED:  I was thrilled to find out that my card was a finalist in the Moxie Fab challenge seen HERE!!
thanks so much for all the wonderful and very appreciated emails

So happy you got some crafty time in, Karen. Your card is so pretty ~ love the pink black and white colors together. Thanks for the washi tape idea (need to break mine out of the packages :)

Your rose is so pretty with the blended pinks. The ribbons you chose are lovely too.

This is wonderful!! I have that set but it hasn't seen the light of day in ages because I've never made anything that I liked. But I LOVE what you have done with it!

Beautiful card, Karen. I like pink/black/white combination. I like how you added scoring to define the washi tape.

SO pretty! I'm a big fan of red/white/black...and of course polka dots! Win-Win all the way around! :)

Oh, Karen, I am so glad you managed to stamp this beauty! This is one set I absolutely regret selling! And you keep making lovely cards with it! Oh, well. I can enjoy yours and figure out a way to CASE using another set. You always inspire me, GF!

Karen, congrats on winning at Moxie Fab World with this beauty! I recognized the sketch right away as my own, which is being featured at SCS's CAS sketch challenge this week. ;) Love what you did with it - it rocks!

Virginia L. said...

Yay, way to go, Karen, on winning the MF challenge! Stunning card!

Lynn said...

Great card! How do you get the ink to appear darker on the inside and fade as you get to the outer edges of the flower? I have tried with very little success. I may be contacted at lynn.wollenberg@frontier.com. Thanks.
