Happy Valentine`s Day CPS

I am so pleased with this card. I followed the sketch on http://cardpositioningsystems.blogspot.com. They are having a anniversary week so it would certainly be worth checking it out. I used the Roses stamp set from Flourishes and I love it. Having two sizes of one stamp provides many opportunities for stamping.
I stamped the smaller rose three times and colored them all with Prismacolored Pencils. I used the new VersaMark Dazzle watermark pad on the large rose. After it had dried quite a bit I added some Dazzling Diamonds for some extra sparkle. Now it looks just like those cards available when I was a young girl. I thought they were so beautiful. I used the sentiment provided in this stamp set with Perfect Plum ink. As you can see, I used the curvy rectangle nestibility on all the roses. To highlight the edge embossing, I used a metallic Rose pencil along the edge.

The inside of the card has the final rose and two more sentiments from the set. I tore the edge of the paper using the ruler from Plaid. It makes such a great edge.
I used papers from Provo Craft and the cardstock is from Bazzill.
I am having a great day...doing all the fun things I want...surfing and playing with paper. Remember to sign up for my blog candy.
Talk later Hugs
