Rosie Posie - TT Winter Blossoms and Jay Gee's Challenge #15


Second post for the day. I couldn't stop at just one card with my new Rosie Posie stamps and dies. I had to have a good play!

In my previous post I forgot to say a big welcome to my new followers! In the last few weeks I have had a few people join me here, and I feel honoured that you would want to see my creations regularly. Thank-you!

These two cards I made for Jay Gee's Nook Challenge #15 and Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger:Winter Blossoms.

I have been watching the inspiration photo boards over at Jay Gee's Nook challenges for months now. Every time I think "Ooh, that is SO nice! I must make a card!", and then promptly miss the deadline.  This time I remembered just in time, YAY! This is the inspiration for January.
And here is my card:
I used Rosie Posie, Filigrie Border, Curly Cute (Stampin' Up!) sentiment. Colours are crumb cake (kraft), blush blossom, barely banana, and certainly celery. Cardstock is PTI vintage cream.

Over at Moxie Fab World, the Tuesday Trigger uses very similar colours to Jay Gee's challenge. I thought while I had all those colours out, I would whip this one up too! Here is the Winter Blossoms trigger.
Delicious, isn't it?

Here is my card.
I used pretty much the same supplies as in the last card, minus green, and including the Soft Suede ribbon and sentiment.

On both cards I am still thinking about adding some pearls, but I haven't decided yet, so here they are shown pearl-less. :-)

Thanks for coming to visit and take a look at my cards, I love having you here.

They are both gorgeous Michelle. Love the subtle colors. I think pearls would be a great addition to both cards.
