Happy Birthday with Red Roses

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? We have had some very cold weather which is not good for all the spring flowers that are starting to bloom. It is good practice for me though as these are the types of temperatures that we will be getting in Iceland.

I made a quick birthday card after work yesterday.

This is a 7" x 7" card. I cut all the mats and layers and found a backing paper in my stash that matched the colours of the mats. I found a doily in my stash and I cut a circle of red and then one of the backing paper for the centre.  I knew I wanted to make red roses. 

I used the Tattered Lace Delicate Rose die to make the roses. I did remove some of the leave so that they weren't too bulky. I made a card a bit like this one as a sample but I sent it in without taking any photos. I have done that a couple of times now. 

Our council has planted daffodils all around our town and they are just starting to come out. These are the ones that I see on my walk home from work. They do look lovely in the sunshine. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. I will be back on Saturday with one more post before we go away. 

Take care. 

Happy Crafting. 

Hugs Jackie
