Christmas Roses in July

Hello and happy Tuesday! How are things going for you? Summer mode means hot and humid days and not much getting done at my house. 

I've had this card made for a couple of weeks and now is the time to share it with you. 

I layered a scalloped border over a striped paper from my stash. The beautiful spray of flowers from the Christmas Rose Bouquet stamps by WPlus9 was die cut and colored with Copics.  

I dotted drops of glue and added gold foil accents to the flower centers. The sentiment was also embossed in gold, and the "you" was die cut in white and gold glitter card stock. 

I really enjoyed creating this card. I always hesitate to pick one style to describe my work, because for me variety is the spice of life! But I have to say that the clean and layered elegant style is one of my favorites. I love how this turned out. 

Now if only my mojo would turn up. You know, I feel like stamping and it just doesn't happen. 
I'm sure you know how that feels too. I am grateful for your visit, hope your day is wonderful!
Be yourself
     Delight in your craft 
        Make something beautiful!
