FS159 - Everythin's Coming Up Roses

Today's Featured stamper is Judy Rose. I stumbled onto Judy's gallery a few weeks ago through all the challenges I have been doing. All I can say is WOW WOW WOW. Go visit her gallery it is truly AMAZING!!! I had a difficult time choosing which card to CASE. I had saved this card to my favorites before I even knew Judy, so I thought it should be the one.


We are supposed to change at least 2 things. I changed everything but the colors, and layout -- but the card is still the same. I didn't have the pretty rhinestone ribbon slide, so I made my own. I look the rectangle ribbon slide from the hodgepodge hardware set and I used Crystal Effects to glue rhinestones around the edges. I made the puffy flowers from Velum like yesterday, but this time I sponged Groovy Guava on the edges. This is one of the Flower Pocket cards. There is a great tutorial on SCS, if you are interested.

If you haven't seen the tutorial on the puffy flowers you can find it here.

Thanks for stopping by,
~Corie
