And another Happy Mother's Day...
I forgot how much I love coloring this rose. I've colored it several times in the last week or so. I posted three similar cards the other day. This one is a larger gate-fold card. (8 1/2 x 5 1/2 closed and 8 1/2 x 11 open) I think I'm going to color a few more yellow ones and then I'm done with this for the year. :) I spent the bulk of my day today coloring and I only got four of the colored. It's big and beautiful, and there is a familiarity to it. I first bought this stamp 9 or 10 years ago? --somewhere in that time frame. It tends to be my go-to when I want to make a big statement.
Score It, Score Pal, and Martha Stewart's Score Board. Holly wrote a very thorough review on her blog about Martha's Score Board, Today's Creations, so I won't repeat what she said. If you haven't already and you are interested, go and read what she wrote.
I used Nestabilities to cut the circles. The rose has a vellum overlay which is where I stamped the message. I only put a tiny bit of glue in the two places the anchors would cover, but it's not going anywhere.
I'm going to a Copic certification class on Monday. I can't imagine anything better than coloring all day long. I can't wait!
