Roses For "U"

2012 Faves


Here's my kick at the can for this week's Freshly Made sketch.  Loved the simplicity of the sketch and had great fun going with one of my favorite colour combos:  pink, brown, kraft and celery.  This combo just makes my heart sing :)  

My on going addition to rolled roses provided me with a substitution for the ribbon on the sketch and my beloved "U" and Flutterby dies from Verve came out to play again.  Must say I am quite happy with the outcome and can't wait to send it to a friend for her birthday :)  One of my favorite things about this card making hobby - you can personalize the card to fit the person to a tee.  Think she'll be giddy when she receives this.

Another busy weekend in the making - never a dull moment around here this time of year!    Hope yours is an enjoyable one.
