Red Rosey Beauties!!

Happy Hump Day friends!! Hope you're having a fabulous week so far! I'm off to lunch with a friend today w/o the kiddoes so it's a nice break away from work & home for me today! Then I've got lots to do when I get home of course, hee hee--never really get a break do we? LOL Well I've got a couple of projects to share with you today, so I'll keep my chatter short here for ya!

**Don't forget to stop by Susana's Store Blog "Follow Your Heart" to enter for that yummy Elisabeth Bell BLOG CANDY--it's fabulous!!

So today is the 15th which means another challenge for the Copic Creations Challenge Blog--this week our challenge was "botanicals/floral" images! This week's sponsor is the fabulous "Flourishes" and they so generously provided each of the DT members with a fabulous stamp set to use. My wonderful stamp set was "I Love Roses" and the set includes these luscious rose images & beautiful sentiments.

For my roses I used Copic Colors "R89,R29,R27,R24,R22, R20" and then I cut them out & added them to my card with dimensionals. I love the stark contrast of an all black & white card with a great pop of red---so elegant! The dp & cs are both from PTI; the sentiment was embossed in black for extra shine and I stickled the edges of the roses for some more shimmer!

Make sure and stop by the Copic Creations Challenge Blog to see the rest of the DT's fabulous projects & to join in too---a fabulous prize is up for grabs from Flourishes!

Second project uses a fabulous Whiff of Joy stamp from the Summer Kit Collection "Shy Willow". The dp is by My Mind's Eye and I love the brocade & colors of it--right up my alley, hee hee! I used the new Spellbinder's "Kaleidoscope" Pendant die for my card--I actually cut it in half & adhered half to the top/bottom of the card. I added some Kaiser pearls to it and the sentiment is from PTI's "Mega Mixed Messages". And of course some fabulous diamond stickles were added to her dress & I applied Shimmerz Spritz in "baby's breath" to the entire card! The Whiff of Joy "Fall Kit" will be available for pre-order HERE on Friday!!

Alrighty, I'm outta here for the day! Don't forget to stop back by tomorrow for the SCACD Blog Hop featuring all the new Elisabeth Bell for SCACD stamps that come out this Friday!
