Roses for me

Yeah, I finally got my computer working! Sadie has her own playlist on my computer and I downloaded her music but evidently she wanted new music so she decided to download it herself. Well, I don't know how she did but she changed every setting on the computer, I had to practically reload the whole thing. I think it is probably time to get her a computer of her own!

For today I am sharing a photo of what I see outside my window as I sit here and type. Aren't they beautiful!

I have see so many pretty cards using the Fifth Avenue Floral but it just wasn't one of my favorites. I bought it when it first came out but just hadn't used it much. Now , that my roses are blooming, I had to give it a try. I am not satisfied with what I came up with so I am still working on it but thought I would share what I have so far.

I am going to go back and add some layers to my rose, I'll share that when I get it done. I first stamped the flower images in Whisper White craft ink on shimmery white card stock and embossed with clear embossing powder. Next I misted my image and then used re-inkers and my aqua painter to color in. I know layers will make it look better. Also, this is a bigger card than I usually make, it is 4 1/2 x 6 3/4. The colors on the card are So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, and Certainly Celery. The Designer paper is Walk in the Park from the Occasions Mini. Don't forget all DP is buy three and get one free. Email me if you need to order.
