A Rose is a Rose

Here I am, back as promised with my wonky card!!!!!! It feels so good to make a card again even if I couldnt get anything straight!!!
I have recently sold a couple of the Rose is a Rose stamp sets so it inspired me to get mine out and make a card. I have opted for a Criss Cross card.
COlour combo is So Saffron, Old Olive and Certainly Celery. The paper is the So Saffron Designer papers and I dont know what went wrong with it but it is all wonky on the right and looks a but rubbish!!!! The bow is made from the gorgeous (FREE if you spend £45 in AUgust) ribbon in Certainly Celery, lovely for tying bows!

Inside I have used the sentiment from Best Yet (wonky) and stamped a rosebud. While I had the set out I also decided to make a matching gift tag.

Here they are together. Hope to get a few cards made tomorrow as I have a few occasions coming up this week.

Bye for now


  1. I love this .. another must get stamp set.
    I love the colours combos look so pretty together . And even tho its a little wonky ... what are handmade cards if they dont have that little " special touch".

  2. Hi Jules,
