Anniversary Roses

Hi Angels!

It was a busy weekend with Miss Nora here and class yesterday.

I have been creating several things but a couple will have to wait until the items make their way to their recipients before I can show them.

Tonight’s card was created for my youngest daughter & her hubby’s anniversary card. They are celebrating 6 years this year.

When I created the blended roses background originally it just didn’t gel. Most likely because it is in color tones I don’t usually work with. So I set it aside and decided that making it a bit smaller was the best way to utilize it in a card. Now it’s perfect.

I used My Favorite Things Roses All Over background stamp, Tim Holtz/Sizzix Roses embossing folder and Taylored Expressions Simple Strips
Background sentiments.

Remember if you’ve been creating & you are not happy or being overly critical of your creation, set it aside & walk away from it for awhile, even a day or two. Then you can look at it again with fresh eyes. Often you will find it’s just fine, needs a little finessing or if you truly don’t like it, there’s the trash can, you can make it into something different, or in the case of working on canvas, paint over it and start something new. Usually it’s not a mistake, it’s just a creative detour.

I hope you have a fabulous week ahead.

Thanks for popping in!

Comments are a blessing.
