Birthday Rose


Hi, I used my new threading water punch to create the trim on this card. I know it's been around for years, but I finally managed to find it. I used a couple of green snippets and joined them together, the white strip is hiding the join nicely!

I coloured 2 roses with tombows and a water pen, and cut part of one away to add some depth. The stamp is Fifth Avenue floral I think from Stampin Up (it's my sister's stamp).

I'm going to link up to the challenge at Inkspirational where there's a sketch challenge.


Since I used some snippets I'm visiting the  playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.
I'm also linking to  Allsorts Challenge Blog, where the theme is how does your garden grow,
and Make It Monday where it's anything goes and to share creativity.

Thanks for visiting :)
