Roses for Rose


This card is to give to Rose tomorrow. Rose is a resident in the block of retirement flats where we now live and, sadly, she is moving into a care home. So tomorrow there is a tea to wish her well and I thought a card with roses on would be appropriate for her.

The papers were in a pack that I've had for a long while - I've got no idea where they came from. The foiled roses were given to me by Donna Carroll, a crafting friend on facebook who foiled and die cut the roses using her todo. Other bits and pieces from stash.

Decoupaged 90th birthday card


This was a commissioned card for a 90th birthday for a lady with limited sight, so I used decoupaged flowers so there's something to feel as well as bold colours to see. The sentiment was created on computer and printed and cut with a todo decorative oval die, distressing with worn lipstick distress ink before removing from the die. This is an 8 x 8 card. The striped panel on the left is some lovely sparkly ribbon that I've had for ages.
