Shimmery Rose and Die Cuts

Welcome

Thank you for coming to visit - sorry I have been MIA for a day or so - I had the pleasure of heading out of town with a friend for a couple of days to attend a stamp expo.  My wallet was empty when I returned home, but the credit card was o.k. as I did not take it with me!!

This card was made for an elderly relative earlier in the year, but I did not blog it at the time, I have discovered.


I started with two S/B Romantic Rectangles.  One was sponged with Spun Sugar D.I. while still in the die, and the edges also sponged. The second rectangle was scored just below the top edge, and then they were glued together. 
  

The rose is one of my originals from Kiwistamping, which I love.  it was painted with Twinkling H2O's.


The butterfly is the cut with the Pippi die from Memory Box, cut in pink vellum.  The trail and body were added in pink rhinestones.


The sentiment was gold embossed and some more rhinestones added.

I loved how this turned out, as did the recipient.

I am linking this to:
A flower, and felicitations.
