Glittery Roses

I have been a blogging slacker!! I can't believe I haven't posted since Monday!!

DH was on vacation this week and we tried to get some projects done. I wanted some florescent lights in my basement over my stamping area. I thought it would be a simple project since there were already lights wired there right?! You know take down the old put up the new then off to stamp! Well. . . I own an older house and sometimes the wiring is not grounded but hey, not a big deal, the other lights were were working right? Are florescent lights supposed to smoke and spark?????? I am guessing NOT!! Time to call our electrician for some serious discussion!

The Manhattan Embossing Folder is like having an instant card maker. The card base is Perfect Plum and the flower is Pale Plum. I used the 2-Way Glue Pen to trace the embossed flower and added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I only did a little section of it at a time. The ribbon is White Taffeta that I dyed using a marker. The sentiment is stamped with the Oval All stamp set and punched with the new Scallop Oval punch and the Large Oval Punch.

Well DD wants the computer to play WOW (World of Warcraft) with DS#2 so off to create something if I can keep my eyes open!!!

This is nice. I like the colors you used. I did one similar. I used the embossing folder on white vellum, put on the glitter and attached it to an amethyst card. I didn't have a clue as to the greeting. I'm posting it this coming Sunday, or sometime this week if you want to peek. I am going to change my greeting though to something like yours. Thanks for the idea!
