A romantic Rose is a Rose!

I have been playing with my new stamps today and have really enjoyed using a Rose is a Rose. Its a gorgeous set, crying out to be used for romantic cards or shabby chic contemporary cards. My neighbour over the road is 60 on Wednesday and this is the card I have made for her from her Husband. Bless him, he daren't ask me himself!!! They know I make cards and everything but he is quite a shy man, so his daughter got in touch with me to order it for him!!!!

I decided to make a card in a box and wrap in tissue paper seeing as it is a special birthday

Picture of the box

Inside with the card wrapped in tissue

The card!
The colour cobo is a mixture of Pretty in Pink, Ruby Red, Rose Red, Old Olive and Very Vanilla cardstock for stamping onto!!!!! WHAT NO BROWN I HEAR YOU ASK!!!!!
Used the ever popular Scallop Edge punch and printed the greeting from my computer and then using the Stamp a ma jig I stamped around the greeting with my new Frames with a Flourish set!! Stickled the rose in places with Stardust stickles.
I really hope Alan and Denise (especially) like the card!!
Back later for blog candy result!!
