Blue Rose

Happy Happy Thursday!!! Goodness this week has flown by! LOVE IT. I just bought my New Moon tickets!! My sister and I are taking our girls Friday night 11-20-09. OOOOOO I am sooo excited! EEEEKKKKK.

On to the card. I got a little crazy with the photography huh? I think I like it just off a little. Just a little wonky. HA I love that word wonky! Anywho.... I got the Allegro Cuttlebug punch and had to test it out. I smeared CTMH white ink over the raised embossed part. Kinda like it! I messed the leaves up. Instead of just cutting out the rose again on the cricut (i did use green to cut out the overlay) for the bottom part of the leaf I just colored it green with my Copic marker, dont really care for the way it came out but I had already spent too much time on the thing so I was makin' it work!
I used the awesome Basic Background Text for the words on the label one die and stamped the border on that with PTI Vintage Labels. The base of the rose is a blue piece of Creative Memories decorative paper, it is all I had that matched the PTI Enchanted Evening cardstock.
I cut out the rose with Hannah Montana Cricut Cart. The Happy Birthday sentiment is PTI Damask Designs. So that is it kids! Hope you like. Have a great night!!!
Cheers!
