Funny how this is not the card I started with. Actually, I started with the ribbon rose. I had made 3 to do the Paper Sundaes challenge this week, which is to make your own flowers. I quite like how they turned out. I simply twisted organdy ribbon scraps in a circle on some score tape. Then I didn't know what to do with them. I found this stamp that hadn't seen some ink yet. Isn't she adorable? She's actually holding a rose bouquet but my roses unbalanced the card so I have her holding just one. The image is coloured with my copics. I'm getting better! Thanks Kristina for showing me the tip technique. Wow! It really does make a difference. The sketch is Martine's from Simon Says Stamp. I really like this one and will probably do it again.
The card is for my Mother's birthday which is tomorrow. Hopefully it isn't too cutsie for her. She's very practical. There is no sentiment inside. We have a running family joke to not put much writing inside because my grandfather will read each card out like a thespian performance in the middle of the restaurant. And people wonder why I sometimes forget to include cards with my gifts... I've had lots of training over the years!
