A Rose is a rose is a rose! :o)

Hello, my friends!

I made a card today for several challenges that I want to participate in.
It's so fun when I can enter several of my favorites with one card!  :o)

I used several new products on this card:
a pretty new Image,
four new Cheery Lynn dies,
one of my new roses,
and a new digi sentiment that I made.

I have a funny little story to tell you.
I've been busy colouring up a whole bunch of new images.
As I was getting notifications of new challenges, 
I was coming up with a project in my mind.
Then today the new Tiddly Ink challenge was announced,
and that inspired me to make my sentiment.
It was so that I could enter my card in their challenge too.

So...I put my card all together, take photos, and start blogging.
Only to realize I didn't use my Tiddly Ink image at all! 
Oh, well! Maybe next time! lol

In case you're interested in using my sentiment, I'll pop it into my "Free Stuff" page.
I forgot to add Shakespeare's name to it but I think everyone knows he said it. 

Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock, K & Company - Watercolor Bouquet;
Image: Wee Stamp by Sylvia Zet - Polly,
Spectrum Noir Markers;
Dies: Cheery Lynn - Celtic Heart Border, Sentiment Frame 1,
Dutch Scallop Square Frame, Mini Leaf;
Pearls and Mini Flowers: Unknown;
Stickles: Star Dust;
Large Rose: The Nickel Nook;
Sentiment: The Nickel Nook.

  10. A beautiful design, gorgeous pearly details...so pretty :-)
    The image is lovely even if it isn't the one you first intended to use! I have to admit I have done something similar when making a card for challenges as opposed to a DT/commission card...I write down all the themes I'm going to cover...and invariably realise at the end that it doesn't fit one or more!
    Oh well, it's all fun and hey, there's a fabulous card at the end of it so it's all good :-)

    Big hugs, Kat xx
