Birthday Rose

     This is my last card as a Guest Designer at Scrapy Land and I'll be so sad to leave them.  But I get to hang out for another couple of weeks, commenting on your wonderful entries and being so inspired by them.

     Our theme this fortnight is "Birthdays" and all you have to do is make something for a birthday, using a brand of dies sold in the store.  Since they carry more than 40 brands, that shouldn't be too difficult.  :-D


     I decided on a very CAS design, all done from scraps and snippets and using all die cuts except for the burlap bow.  The sentiment is cut with a die from Sizzix (Tim Holtz - Celebrations) and the rose die is from Die-Namites.

     I cut the rose three times, once in green and twice in two different shades of pink.  The darker pink is CS and the lighter one is paper.  I cut the rose off the green stem to use the stem and leaves alone.  The two pink roses I layered together, slightly offset for a shadowed effect.

     I hope you like this CAS creation.  I'm rather thrilled with it myself since it actually turned out even better than the way I had visualized it in my head.  :-D  Come play along, won't you?

     Also, check back a bit later for my second post of the day, featuring a card done for the start of the new challenge over at MHK Designs.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Please continue to leave comments.  The "Word Verification" really isn't on.  BLOGGER INSISTS ON SHOWING THE "CAPTCHA" BOX BUT IF YOU IGNORE IT AND JUST PUBLISH YOUR COMMENT, IT WILL POST JUST FINE.  I WISH I COULD GET RID OF IT BUT THERE'S NO OPTION FOR THAT WHEN THE COMMENTS ARE WRITTEN IN A SEPARATE BOX. SORRY.
