I made this card for today's Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers - the website featured today is the Victorian Trading Company and there was so much fabulous inspiration that it was hard to choose, but as soon as I saw this American Beauty Umbrella, I knew I would be heading for the MFT Mini Rolled Rose Die-namics and the red felt - I never get tired of rolling those sweet little roses! I added some black brads and leaves using the Martha Stewart Rose Leaf punch - using a scoring tool to add lines to represent veins makes the leaf pop up with lovely dimension and texture.
This is also the MFT Wednesday Sketch Club #70 sketch this week given to us by Frances (stampowl).
My mom just sent me MFT Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics, so making banners has become a lot easier! Thanks, Mom! I used my Perfect Layers tools to add a small black frame behind it.
This sentiment is so very true and the card will be going to a friend of mine who's going through a nightmare time at work - she knows we're right behind her in prayer through the whole thing, so I hope this will encourage her.
