Good Sunday morning.  Aren’t weekends wonderful.  Even though Sunday is more house chores day it is still so relaxing compared to work days.  I have had a great time this morning playing with some new designer paper.  Our Rubbernecker design team had a paper exchange so everyone could have something new and different to play with.  Joan gifted me with beautiful floral papers and the one I used today is from The Girls Paperie and is called Vintage Whimsy. The sweet roses on the paper inspired me to create a paper rose and foliage project.  I love the sentiment from Rubbernecker’s Floral Silhouette Set.

I assembled the base of the card with the designer paper and added a strip of eyelet border in white to add another vintage element.  I die cut the double matted frame using Nestabilities Label and Oval dies and layered over the sentiment and mounted.

I created the roses using the bright and colorful cardstock that I used for the base of the card and frame.  I wanted the rose and bud to pop in contrast to the soft pink background.  I used cardstock for the leaves that perfectly matched the foliage on the designer paper. I added a little softness around the rose and bud with punched branch sprigs.  This is a sweet card to give a good friend for any occasion.

Thanks for looking in today.  I have another long work week ahead of me due to moving in and  opening a new medical practice so I will probably miss some of my regular posts again.  I keep thinking I’m too old for this stuff but I am thankful to have a good job.  Have a great week.
