Today I decided to work with a stamp set I got from I Brake for Stamps in which there is a beautiful rose background image. I wanted a fairly simple card but wanted it to still look quite colorful! I used Copics to color the rose background and then simply added the sentiment from the set onto layers. By adding a bow which was made with the Craft-Dee BowZ maker and some bling I called my card complete.
I must confess too, that for some reason unknown I was not in the mood to stamp. So perhaps my forcing myself to do so might show up in the end results. I am sure now and then everyone has that feeling occasionally. But I wanted to have some notecards on hand and thought this was a good way to go.
Oh, and I used decorative scissors from Fiskars to cut out the border. Forgot to mention that.
