Me and Carrie Lou Roses

Hi everybody. I am so pleased. Susan from Me and Carrie Lou stamps asked if they could use some of my work for display purposes on their blog. I feel so great...imagine someone wanting to show off my take on their stamps! I am so pleased. Today I made a card suitable for just about anything. I used the 3 Me and Carrie Lou stamps and 1 Magenta rose stamp for this card.
I embossed all these images on watercolor paper using Gold Detail powder. The stamps make a wonderful impression that embosses perfectly. After embossing I used Twinkling H2Os to paint.

I embossed, painted and then cut out the Rose before attaching it onto the Victorian Background Image. I cut out the BG image and attached it to Pale Pink paper from DCWV. I ran my versamark pad around the edges of the pink paper and embossed with gold detail powder and then attached to the base cardstock.

On the inside I attached another rectangle of the Pale Pink paper and a section of the Romantic Border image on the bottom of the page and the flowers from the Hummingbirds stamp on the left side.
I really recommend you check out these Carrie Lou stamps. As you can see they are versatile...you can cut out sections of an image and they work well with other images. Go on, check them out.
On the homefront we are busy getting set up for Graduation. Its only 3 weeks until the party and all the house and yard have to be cleaned up after the winter. My DH mowed the yard for the first time last night and that's when I know Summer is coming. That and the fact that Spring allergies have hit the house...there is more sneezing going on then breathing sometimes. The boys only have slight allergies so once they get in the groove of Summer the sneezing will stop.
Hope your day is great.
Here are the stamps used:
Me and Carrie Lou: Hummingbirds K130
Romatic Border H117
Victorian Background K180
Magenta : 0907910
