A Rose Is A Rose Birthday Card

Hi all,

Well can you believe it's half way till the weekend :) Today I have been making a card for a wonderful 94 year old, and I think it's safe to say that she doesn't surf the net, so I think I can post the card here :)

I was inspired by this card and knew I had to have a go and get out my "A Rose Is A Rose" stamp set that I adore and haven't used for a while. I rarely use my Designer Series Papers (too nice to cut into), lol, but I decided to today. As this card is A5 in size, I decided that there was too much white space, so I have used the Poppin' Pastels technique (stamping the large rose in Versamark Stamp Pad, then using a Sponge Dauber to lightly dab Barely Banana chalk over the wet image for a subtle background. The sentiment is from a stamp set called "Whimsical Words" from the recent Sale-A-Bration promotion that ended in February.
