Do you ever run across sentiments that are just so dead on that you have to have them? That's how I felt when I ran across the Just for You set from Verve. It's just really really nice. When I look at the sentiments, I think of women like my mom, my aunts, friends, mentors...it can just be used for so many of the people in our lives who helped to mold who we are.
I'm using the colors from this week's CR84FN challenge. Here are the challenge
And here is my card:
I really love these colors together..very rich. For the red I used Cherry Cobbler - just hands down the BEST red out there! I also used my new MFT Mini Rolled Roses dies. Like the original, they are fun and easy to use but they're smaller and oh so cute! They work perfectly on felt (the cream rose) and card stock (the brown). I will say, though, that I have much better luck if I emboss the card stock first with an embossing folder. It kinda breaks down the card stock a bit and it's easier to "roll".
That's it from me today. I hope you guys have a wonderful day! Laters...
