Happy Birthday with roses


I stamped a page full of this roses stamp yesterday afternoon. I don't know why, but sitting there and coloring them in was just very relaxing. I think I could do it all day.
(Hey Lisa R - you enabled me to buy this stamp months ago 'cos you made that beautful tag for me with it. I'm finally getting around to using the stamp I had to have!)
I cut apart the sheet and ended up with 8 useable ones for cards. Here's the first one I made. I had some SEI striped paper and used my cuttlebug embossing folder for the swiss dots. I got the scallop by using the StampinUp! punch all across. I pop dotted the whole piece - kinda looks like an awning huh? I repeated the scallop business at the bottom (but that portion isn't embossed).And thats also a portion of a Hero Arts sentiment (it says Happy Birthday to You but no room for the 2u on this one)
I really need to make something more simple for the coffee shop but you know how it is once you get started on something. I have a few other ones in the works which I'll definitely go more simple.
Ok - off to the races!

OOOOH! I Looooove this card! I love the awning look of it. I thought it looked like an awning before I actually read your entry. I just received my swiss dots embossing folder in the mail yesterday. Now just my paisley e.f. is on back order. I can't wait to see this card IRL!

oh WOW!!! i love the card, love the stamp, LOVE the awning!!!

(and yeah, i love to color as well--what a fab idea to stamp and pre-color when you feel like coloring...those will pay off in quick cards later--you are TOO CLEVER!!!!)
