Rose valentine card.

Hello, friends!

Thank you so much for the birthday wishes! They meant so much to me!

Today's card has no cricut and is just stamping. I do not do this often, but this stamp set inspires me quite a bit.

Now remember today is the last day to get this stamp set, the Who's Your Valentine kit, and this is the last day you can order from the current catalog. Also, this is the last day on the drawing for $50 worth of free stuff in the new catalog. To get in on this, all you have to do is place an order with me today.

For this card, I stamped the large rose image onto cardstock. Then I colored int he image using Close To My Heart Blush and Sweet Leaf marker sets. Next, I carefully cut out the image. This took sometime, but I had CSI on in the background so it was not too bad.

The sentiment was stamped on vellum and the paper used is from the NEW catalog and is called For Always (X7165B).
