Valentine Roses

Yeah I know - they come like buses!

Yet another posting for me today - I've been a busy little bee this week. Got my DT cards done and ready, got a few challenge cards done and I also have a Wedding order on. Sorry kids - no tea! (joking!)

This card was a lovely project to make. I spent some pennies yesterday on a site named D.A.I.S.I.E. and bought a few digi-sets from them. I had a play with what I got, and this is the result!

The layout is from the lovely ladies at Midnight Madness - gorgeous sketches, and now you get to choose between a simple one and a more challenging one. I chose to use the latter. Well, that is what challenges are about aren't they??

This also fits a few other challenges, funnily enough! LOL. At A Spoon Full Of Sugar, the theme is 'Freestyle'. Anything goes - yeay! At Cute Daisy May the theme is 'Vintage' and at Cute Card Thursday the theme is 'Flowers'.

Like I said, the images and papers came from digi-sets at D.A.I.S.I.E., by Gina Jane. One is named 'Cottage Roses' and is a shabby vintage style, the other is named 'L'Amore', and is a lovely set of papers and images around the theme of Love. Fortunately for me both sets seem to match each other perfectly. I printed out all the elements onto ordinary card, and spent last night cutting all the little bits out ready for making up today.

Last thing I did after making it up and layering with loads of foam pads, was to add some stickles, some gold and some pink here and there. Then I put some silver metallic rub-on round the edges of the base card and the circle frame bit.

Right, I think that will do for today - LOL. Time to start printing all the Wedding Invites, RSVP's and Place Settings. Luckily for me, their theme is Black and White, so no colour matching to worry about - yeay! I like things to be simple. . . Might even show you when I'm done. . .
