Christmas Roses



Blogger is acting up with my photo so hope all is well when I publish this card.

Today is the new Queen for the Day challenge on Splitcoaststampers -#180- and I have to say I wanted to case all of the new queen's cards. What a fabulous gallery. It is Cheryl aka CherylStamps and this is the card I cased. Isn't it beautiful?


My swag is Christmas Roses by Just Ink Lined and is a digital image. I cut out the flowers by hand. How nice it would be to have a die for it. I colored the image with Copics.

I'll enter my card into the challenge at Paper Take Weekly-Anything Goes With the optional extra to do a Christmas card/project
Weekly Christmas Card Challenge#40-Use something new when creating your Christmas or holiday card....This is the first time using my image of Christmas Roses

Hope everyone has a fab weekend. It is beautiful here and I think the nice weather will continue for several days.

Lovely Christmas card Brenda. I really need to get on with my Christmas cards, I have only made a few this year. Hopefully I'll manage at least one this weekend. I hope your weekend will be crafty and wonderful.

das Layout deiner Karte gefällt mir sehr gut, Brenda. Du hast schöne Farbkontraste gesetzt und eine tolle Prägung. Auch das Stempelmotiv passt sehr schön dazu.
Dir noch ein schönes WE. Wir hatten heute auch 31C°, da wollen alle Pflanzen noch mal ordentlich gegossen werden.
♥ Grüße, Anja

"How nice it would be to have a die for it": I have uttered those same words to myself many a time, when trimming out complicated images. ;)

Love the swoopy line joining the white and green together, Benzi...it's a cool sketch!

Spectacular, Benzi! Love the green and white with only that little pop of red on the berries. Wonderful fussy cutting. :-D

MaryH said...

Simply lovely color combo, & I like this image. Loved the curvy layout. Noticed that your CASEd card mentioned using the curved borders, wondered if you did as well? (Don't have those, didn't know if I'd use them...). Great job on the fussy cutting, and really loved both your card and your CASEd one. TFS & Hugs
