This is a few roses to cheer up a friend Denise to help her get better. join us this week for our t-pot party.
she loves roses, tulips and kitties. I am going to have alittle kitty inside with her get well wishes. and might put in a couple loose material rose petals too, to go along with the story...:0)
I had much troubles getting here to the finish, as I have not many rose stamps and only one tiny kitty one, so thought I would draw one. I can only draw off pictures and |I searched a long time and couldnt find a kitten with roses, as I wanted to combine the both, so I finally found a cute cat from aristocats from disney and drew it. After drawing it on my last piece of water color paper and tracing it with the black no run marker, I went to color it and it did not shade at all, or hardly any so had to scratch that idea.
so went through all my bits and pieces and found a couple rose stickers, I know she likes bright colors and all |I had were soft ones...lol..so kept looking...lol. Now its after 1 a.m....so....And I am one that hates to finish in the middle of a card, except the insides so took a coupole rose stickers and went with that.
I found this nice die-cut my mom sent me and the one sticker fit so nice in the corner, sponged teh edges and added the tiny rose to balance it off , from another set of stickers and fancy cut it out.
I goofed on the sponging on the edges and got some a bit on the outside on one spot so had to do all the way around to match. didnt show up well on white so put it on a black bg and decided to set that off with the pretty green that was on the leaves a bit. then added that to white card base and still needed something so added the little corners. If wasnt sending that far would try a pretty bow , but they stick out too much.
Sooo hope she likes it. I only have one get well stamp and the font of it didnt match the roses so added a believe, to help her know she can believe in herself to get better, and will put the lil kitty and get well soon in the inside.
Tired know so I do say sorry for the long story here...thanks for the visit..:0)

Sounds like you worked so hard on your card-no wonder you are tired. But this turned out delightful. I love how you shaded your focal point. the rose images are so very pretty. It will be so cute when Denise opens it to find a Kitty inside. You are so thoughtful!

Some days are just like that, Wendy! A couple times in the past I've had all my materials layed out, picked out a card to case from a queen, looked at it all and just didn't feel it in me to create. So I put everything back in its rightful place. Your rose stickers look perfect on this pretty die that your mom gave to you! I think it turned out wonderful~

The trials and tribulations of a card-maker :D. It looks just lovely - your soft sponging and rose stickers look just great, especially set against the deep green. And as for only being able to draw from a picture - if I could even do that I'd be happy!!

Oh how I know what you went thru!!! Now I feel like I didn't go thru my struggle alone! : ) I think your card is so pretty! That die cut is fabulous and your sponging looks wonderful to me!!! The roses you used look perfect in the corners and I love your sentiment! AND I wish I had thought of putting a kittie on the inside of my card too! LOL
