Friday Sketchers ~ One Stop Crafts - Roses & Stamp Something - Charmed Somethings
I got my new glasses this afternoon and I'm having a little difficulty focusing in all areas. It's almost as though I'm wearing varifocals for the first time, when in fact I've used them for years and years. I complained a little in the opticians, but they wanted me to try them for a while before they do anything further about it. My last pair were like a dream from the first moment I wore them and I was expecting that these would be likewise. Time will tell if I can get on with them!
This card is for three challenges. The sketch is from Friday Sketchers, One Stop Craft's theme is Roses and Stamp Something requested a Charm on the card. The rose link may seem a little obscure, but I chose the butterfly image from Stampendous which includes roses as part of the Renee Mackintosh style design.
The deep pink backing paper has been overstamped in silver with a Papermania corner flourish and the paler pink rectangle has been embossed with the Cuttlebug Stylised Flowers embossing folder.
I really think that I'm going to have to get myself a daylight lamp as the ribbon was a perfect match in my craft room, but it looks several shades out in the picture.
