Birthday Hugs

Happy Monday, friends! This is a quick post from me as I've been juggling chainsaws all day! And I have a paper cut to prove it!

I made this card over the weekend for a special friend who is celebrating her birthday this month. We have a common love for a few crafty companies and I am sure she will appreciate this card ... I think... I hope ... fingers crossed!

My affair with CAS continues, although it takes me hours to complete a project and leaves me shattered with a headache! I was inspired by Altenew's September Challenge and picked the colours and washi tape elements from the photo to create this floral number featuring Vintage Roses stamps. The inks are a combination of Ranger Archival, Ranger Dye, Lawn Fawn and Memento. The washi tape is by WRMK.

Here is a closer look at the roses. I stamped the leaves directly on the cardstock and added the roses, adhering a few on foam tape. For added sparkle: sequins and Wink Of Stella Clear Brush.  The sentiment is from MFT Label Maker Sentiment.
