Coming Up Roses

Morning all and Happy Sunday.   Sunday's are my day on the Make the Day Special Stamp Store blog and today I have a card to share that I made for my Aunt whose birthday was this weekend and I went all out with some of my favourite sets from WPlus9.

I started with the lovely new Coming Up Roses set and stamped the multi-bloom spring directly on the base card in green adding the triple rose stamps in red with deep red for the top layer.  Next came a floral fest of stamping a die cutting using all the different blooms in the set in red, pink and yellow.  I love playing florist with these sets and I simply arranged the die cut and stamped blooms in place with pin flair gel for dimension around the vase which was stamped in blue with grey edges.

I used the Aunt stamp from Embroidered Bouquet Additions and embossed it in white on grey card and cut a little banner for over the vase.  The best wishes sentiment is from Fresh Cut Wreaths - I like to use sentiments on the front I can carry on into the middle so I added "on your birthday" inside.

I finished the card with a little DP (from my scrap box so no idea what its from sorry!) and my favourite twine - I love the thickness of all the Lawn Fawn twine but this triple set has my two "go to" colours of teal and grey so I use it a lot.  A simple line of it with a knot adds interest to the design without getting too fussy.

As this is very CAS which is very much my signature style I am going to enter it into this week's Birthday Week Comfort Zone Challenge at Wplus9's blog!/~/product/category=3351881&id=32781808!/~/product/category=3351881&id=32781823!/~/product/category=3351881&id=32781821!/~/product/category=3351881&id=24370359!/~/product/category=2717767&id=12122472
