Hope everyone had a lovely weekend! Yesterday was Chinese New Year, and being the horrible Asian that I am, I forgot it until reminded by a phone call from home. So no fish or dumplings in this household. :-P In any case, nian nian yo yu to all (basically "may you have plenty every year" or yu is a synonym for fish so "may you have fish every year").
Ok, the colors of Becky's Compose a Card 3 scared me to pieces. I like terracotta with spring rain and I like raspberry fizz. But now you want me to put them TOGETHER? Well, I figure I don't get many chances to make cards, so I might as well take the crazy challenges. Hah.
I love my flower stamps but I also like making my own flowers. So I figured for this challenge, that's what I'd do. I punched some 3 inch circles (give or take) and embossed some polka dots. The great thing is that since I was going to cut it up a little, the embossing didn't have to be perfect. :)
I took the circles and cut spirals and rolled them tightly. Once I finished rolling them, I let go and since I had rolled so tightly, they didn't give too much. I applied some glue to the base and now I had these cute little paper roses.
The frame is stamped with Very Vintage Labels No 4 from WMS. I adore that set. Can't put it down. I opted to cut a frame this time to give it a fun look as well. A few pink gems, swirly gems and a sentiment later, I called it a day. :)
