Tan, White and Red All Over

Hello! Today's sample is an easy one, using the line art rose from "A Year of Flowers" inked in Vivid Brick Red and the bold one from "Pressed Flowers" in Vivid Tuscan Tan. I cut them out and popped them up over the bold tan stems. TIP: One of my favorite ways to mat flowers is to have them extend over the edge of the mat to imply growth. :) For the background I stamped the leaves in tan on Soft Sand CS, and matted onto Lipstick Red and White. A few adhesive nail heads add some bling!


Have a glorious weekend! I have some longer posts and new cards to share but just have not hda time getting ready for the big PAR-TAY tomorrow! (no sorry, not release, didn't mean to excite you , my son's party LOL!) wish me luck! keep praying for no rain! ;) today's weather was miserable!!)

Hi Mel, your card is beautiful.
FYI, I just caved in and bought a year of flowers, pressed flowers,tech talk,a stamp-a-ma-jig, and storage box for them. Thanks for being such an enabler!!

My favorite color combo! Beautiful. Hey, I made that pineapple casserole today. A friend from the big city found some cheddar cheese and sent me some. I thought of you while enjoying it. :-)
