New Toy!

Last week I bought a set of Die-namics mini Rolled Roses at the local scrapbooking store, and boy, are they ever "fun"!? After making a dozen of the roses, I was not completely pleased and then realized that I was not layering them correctly. So it happened I stumbled upon Kristina Werner's video (see Rolled roses). After watching the video, I finally had an "ah-ha" moment and got right to work...making more roses!

 With a row of 8 mini roses, I decided to keep the card design super simple. It only needs to have sentiment, embossed pink heart and scalloped borders added! Here is the close-up!

This card is perfect for any woman in your life that has an important relationship with you. I am entering this for the Moxie Fab World's Celebrating Relationship Challenge. There are still 13 days to join my virtual birthday party (see here ).  I have enjoyed seeing each and every entry and I am looking forward to more!
