Red and White

Well I seem to be motivating myself to make cards again (and managing to blog them) but I must apologise for not getting round to visiting you as much as I should - I seem to be spending all day getting absolutely nothing done including the housework.

My card today is a very CAS design using a lovely rose stamp from Clearly Besotted's 'happy everything' set which I cut with the matching die. I really couldn't motivate myself to get the Promarkers out so I decided 'what the heck' and left it uncoloured. I used a leftover piece of red spotty paper, a bit of ribbon and some red gems to show off the 'white' rose and added a gold peel-off sentiment.

 I shall enter this in the following challenges -
Crafty Catz challenge 'happy birthday'
ABC challenge 'u for unique'
Virginia's View challenge 'clean and simple'

Thanks for your visit today and for taking the time to leave me a comment.
