Roses for a guy :)

I just love these girls from Kenny K, and they are just a dream to color with Copics. My husband got this card for his birthday a few weeks ago... needless to say he was very pleased with his card this year ;))))

Papers are from Maya Design, text from Kort og Godt Hobby, blingswirl from Prima and gorgeous roses from Wild Orchid Crafts: 25mm open roses and 15mm open roses :) 

Of course a guy can get roses and bling on his card, don't you agree??

Thanks for stopping by ♥ Hugs♥

Christmas Colored Flowers!

I fell in love with these flowers together.  The green is such a gorgeous shade and just makes the most perfect Christmas setting!  I used Red Curly Wild Rose, Olive Cherry Blossoms , and Deep Ivory Gypsophilia.  The lace is Natural Cotton Lace and the pearls are 3mm Ivory and Tan .  My image is called "Carol Singing" from Lily of the Valley.

So many wonderful embellishments at Wild Orchid Crafts! Please go have a look!

Hugs, Dena

There is a fab prize up for grabs so get your Magnolia stamps out and get inky!  You never know, you could be the lucky winner of this prize.

Happy Fall

Fall is here although in the U.S. we are still getting some bouts of summer weather, which doesn't bother me one bit!  :)  With it being fall, before I know it, it will be Thanksgiving here and then Christmas!  Time sure is flying!  Today I have a fun fall card to share! 
For my card I've used a WOJ stamp.  Papers are from the K&Company Classic K Bailey Collection and have been distressed with my Distress-It-All machine, and then I added Antique Linen Crackle paint to the paper edges for an vintage look. Image was colored with my Copics. 
Flowers are from the wonderful Wild Orchid Crafts.  Arrangement consists of 35mm Wild Rose, Cherry Blossoms, 15mm roses, 10mm roses, 8mm semi-open roses, and a pearl hat pin.  I then spritz the flower arrangement with my Maya Mist in Iridescent Pearl for a nice shimmer.

I hope you've enjoyed my fall card!
