ColourQing With The Paper Players
I needed a 50th birthday card for a friend and the big circle on this week's Paper Players sketch was calling my name as it was perfect for a big "5-0"on it ;) I combined it with this week's Colour Q as it was a yummy colour combo and she loves blue.
Since I'm on a bit of a rolled rose binge, I pulled out my two largest MFT rolled rose dies and went to work. The larger ones are a bit harder to manage - most likely due to the fact I didn't have a large enough glue dot to hold them together properly. They are rather "open" roses, but it works for me and keeps my frustration level down by not fiddling with them any more. The leaves are from Spellbinders "Foliage" set and I sponged them before pulling them out of the die to give the leaves and outline and some dimension.
The "ugh" portion of this card is I just realized I didn't cover up/didn't place the bottom leaf properly as a bit of leaf stem is showing. Hate when something like this slips by me, but glad I caught it before rather than after the fact. Will have it corrected before I give it to her this weekend and will also edit the picture accordingly. Until then, all anal retentive people look away LOL!
Another busy weekend - it truly is a blur until the end of the school year! Wish I had more hours in my day so I could get more done. Think there may be a few power naps in my future so I can plow through the next month's activities and come out the other end somewhat alive!
Thanks for popping by and have a great day :)
