Roses for Him, Roses for Her

It's time for another challenge with us at the

This week we are letting our creative juices flow with
Challenge 134 - Celebrate

The sponsors for this challenge are:

Morgan's ArtWorld
Prize: 3 Digital Images

Prize: 1 Bundle of your choice - no combo packs


Today I have used the Valentine 12 digital stamp from Morgan's ArtWorld, one of our generous sponsors this week, to make two A5 top folding birthday cards, His & Hers Roses.

The rose image is so elegant that I went with a CAS style to celebrate its beauty.

Do you think I should add some sparkling clear sequins to the "hers" card?
I was thinking of a cluster of 3 or 5 down on the RHS of the sentiment.

Before you say anything, yes, I know there is no such a thing as a blue rose.
The "blue rose" is something that rose growers all over the world dream of
and are trying to grow.  My Father loves his roses, so I have made a 
one-of-a-kind blue rose from my beloved, one-of-a-kind Dad.

The inside of each card is matted and finished off with a die cut sentiment.

  5. I would never tell you there is no such thing as a blue rose! That is the beauty of being a card maker, the only limit is what you can dream up! I think your blue rose turned out to be so pretty, and I am sure your dad will think so too.

    I say the other card looks good just like it is. It Is so pretty CAS,I don't think it needs sequins.

    1. Thank You Marianne :)
      Yes, colours are only limited by our imaginations when we have markers in our hands!
      Thank You for the feedback about the sequins ... I sat some there, hesitated before opening the glue, asked my husband and he said no too, so you both must be right :)
