Birthday Roses

Hello, friends. A quick card from me... and this really is quick. It took me 16 minutes! That is a HUGE deal because my card-making endeavours generally take between 2 hours to 2 days. AND check this out: no embellishments of any kind on this project - no bling, nor sequins, ribbon, not even a single stitch in sight! I barely survived the 16-minute ordeal!

I'm using Clearly Besotted stamps today. The roses are from the Sketched Blooms and the sentiment is from Sweet Little Sentiments. The chevron cut-out is a die by WRMK-Lifestyle.



I stamped the out line of the blooms with VersaFine Onyx Black and the solids with VersaFine Satin Red. Then I cut them out and adhered the larger one directly on the white panel and popped of the smaller rose on foam tape.


Here's a closer look at the chevron cut out section. I lined it with Heidi Swapp's Black Glitter Washi Tape.

Time Out #27: CAS + Twist B&W and one other colour
Just Us Girls #285: Black + White + Third Colour Of Choice

Rosie's Update:  It's been a long day. Rosie is not feeling well. She's not eating and has to be fed by hand, even then it's a struggle. She goes through these cycles of no appetite and it's important that we address it immediately to stave off cachexia. Her cough is getting worse, which is expected and she's visibly more tired. My heart is heavy with worry and fear... and Rosie is strong and fearless as alway. We'll continue to soldier on, taking one day at a time.

Thank you for stopping by today. Have a beautiful day and give your furbabe a hug or two or three.

Beijinhos!
