Happy Friday! That means it is time for another blogger's challenge!
This week's theme was "Falling For You". That Lisa is so clever with her double meaning themes! We could do a Autumn themed card or a Love/Anniversary themed card. Immediately I intended to make an Autumn card. I love all my leaf stamps and have I mentioned that I love the colors of Autumn? ;) But when it came time to pick my stamps I decided to actually challenge myself and do a Loooooove card. So I grabbed my Stipple Rose stamp (that I don't recall ever using before). and set to work. I stamped one and colored it all in. It just didn't look that good to me. So I decided to just take the piece that I was happy with and do a cleaner/simpler card. This is what I ended up with. Not my masterpiece...but I have totally admitted to being a "cutesy" stamper and this is not my regular style. I thought about leaving this one and making an Autumn card...or making a more cutesy lovey card....but it was almost midnight and I just ran out of time. So this card and the poor photo of it will have to do.

Have a Fabulous Friday!

Kerry - I think this rose is so elegant. The petals look as rich as velvet against that clean, crisp background and you used just the right shades of red and green to make it look like it was plucked out of your garden!

Great job - especially if cutsie is your thing!

XOXO
