My Friend, My World

Well guess what - more vellum!  LOL!  And to think this stuff has been sitting in my drawer for years.  Honestly, I don't know about me sometimes.  I'm just so smitten with that white lacy border... I just can't get enough already. 


Soooooooo.... I went searching on You Tube the other day for "paper rose tutorials" to see what I could find. I probably spent an hour watching numerous different videos to try my own rose and my efforts yielded 1 rose and 2 smaller ones (at bottom of card)... but I love how they turned out! (The upper rose groups were made using MFT Royal Rose die.) So anyway, I will include the link for the tutorial I eventually went with. It did take a while, but to be honest I really enjoyed it the whole process. I do plan to make more, but I will make a whole "rose garden" at one sitting so I can have them available at the ready for future cards.

Here's the inside:


Well that's it from me tonight.... although I do want to mention that I really am enjoying your comments.  Each ones brings a big smile and are genuinely appreciated.... so thank you!!

'Till next time,
Carla.

Carla - Carla - Carla! I can't type now. I've swooned. It's all your vellum and roses' fault. They've taken my breath away. Oh my goodness they're so beautiful. Thank you for sharing the tutorial link. You're the best!
