Blogger's Challenge #39--Roses are Red



I am very happy with the way this turned out! I went down to my studio to make a card with this week's Monday Lunchtime Sketch and a coffee theme and somehow this is what I made instead! Tee Hee funny how the creative mind works, lol. Anyway, I think this will be my Mother's Day card this year -- because she does mean everything to me!

So the Blogger's Challenge this week was to use the colors Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou and Real Red .


Stamps: Wild Rose, Always, Floral Background and the retired Watercolor minis
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, Real Red and Whisper White.
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, Real Red and Always Artichoke
Other: Chocolate Chip wide satin ribbon, large chocolate chip brads, large scallop oval punch, sponges

Don't forget to check out the other player's cards by clicking on the logo on the right hand side of my blog. They will inspire you for sure!

Hope everyone has a blessed Good Friday -- and don't forget what happened just a short three days later -- Jesus is risen from the dead to give us life -- Thank you Jesus!
