yellow rose

Good morning! This is another scheduled post! I'd like to show you the card I made for my Joanna Sheen Forum Cardswap this month - the theme was roses - and I had to think long and hard before I remembered I had this old kanban stamp from many years ago. I chose yellow as the colour as I adore yellow roses:


The background was another kanban stamp that I stamped in butterscotch adirondack over and over to create the background itself. The image was coloured with promarkers. I used DI around the outside of the image (scattered straw) and then added it to a mat cut with a spellbinders die. The ribbon is from Creative Expressions.

Thanks for joining me today and I look forward to seeing you again soon!

Big Hugs
