Love Is In The Air ~ The first thing that came into my mind was a red rose . . .

       018

Photographing white I find to be challenging.  Looking closer you can see I used textured cardstock just under the lattice die cut (partially trimmed down) and under that, I used smooth cardstock - scoring lines every 1/8” for yet another texture.  Notice that the lattice piece was popped up with dimensionals.

      011

A simple inside . . .

                    019

I know this rose bud has been around a while, but it’s one of those things that I can’t seem to grow tired of.  Thank You SU! for the Two Bird Step Punch!!

And THANK YOU for stopping by!
