MC June/15 - Heirloom Roses - Smile - HB

http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2015/MCJune15_HeirloomRoses_Smile_HB.htmlI acquired the Dylusions "Squares Large" stencil and finally my couple of days dry spell evaporated... It's a 9 x 12" stencil, so had to move it around to get the borders I wanted... but have since eCut one that is 5 x 7, the exact size of my preferred card size. BIG GRIN (you can see the card made with the eCut stencil HERE)

Love the colors, nice and summery and we have 30ºC here in Calgary. And I'm using my favorite rose die from Die-Namics "Hybrid Heirloom Roses" as well as some that I eCut smaller than the die. and some of those leaves are made from polymer clay. The demo I went to about a month or so ago, where the artist made leaf canes. Loved them...

Anyway you can see all the details and descriptions by clicking on any card image - enjoy.

I'm using sentiment stamps ("Just For You" 4pce set; "Happy Birthday Plain & Simple" 7pce set; "Butterfly/Dragonfly" 7 pce set) and design elements on the inside by Quietfire Design and eCut file ("Smile") by Suzanne available on the Silhouette onLine store.
