~A Yellow Birthday Rose and Gingham~

I've missed blogging last week!

Where did last week go???

I "attempted" cards all week...and have this colored rose to prove it.

It found a home on this card.

I embossed this rose with Stampendous Rubellite embossing powder.

When I colored with Copics, it got a bit smeary...but I like the way it shades the edges.

I'm so glad I colored it yellow....

I threw in some gingham tabs

There are birthday parties going on at CAS-ual Fridays:CFC51

I inked my birthday sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress mustard seed and tapped the edges with Memento plum to get a variegated effect.

Thank you for popping in today, I appreciate it so much!
