A Rose For A Friend

Happy Thursday to ALL!  Another weekend will soon be upon us, I sure am ready, how about you?

I have a dear friend who will be celebrating her Birthday next week and I wanted to make her card a little special.  You have seen this embossing folder before, but this is my first time making the rose.  I think it turned out pretty well.

It took a little time until I got the hang of it.  All petals were punched in Pretty in Pink and then I sponged all edges with the same colored ink.  Then glued the petals one by one.  *smiles*  I’m not too sure about those rose buds,  I’ll keep working on those!  *smiles*

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CYNTHIA!

I wish you all the very best for the weekend, stay safe, healthy, enjoy each other and I hope you find the time to stamp!  *smile*

I always have great anticipation when I get the e-mail telling me you have made another card, I can't wait to 'unwrap' your latest candy and today, I was bowled over by this gorgeous card. More so because I just bought this embossing folder and wanted to see what it might look like 'done up'.....well now I know!
It's so pretty and your rose is to die for Linda!! Cynthia is a lucky lady! xxx
