Another Vintage Rose

I had so much fun creating the card for my last post that I had to do another one.  The only difference between this card and the last one is that I made the flower out of Regal Rose card stock, added a few extra petals, and sponged it with Rose Red ink.  The card base is Old Olive as well as the ink for the sentiment.  (I used a different one from the same stamp set.)  Here is the entire card:

Stamps: Afterthoughts (hostess level one)
Paper: Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Regal Rose, First Edition designer series paper
Ink: Rose Red, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede
Accessories: Two-Step Owl punch, Extra-Large Scallop Oval punch, Decorative Label punch, Wide Oval punch, Oval punch, bone folder, sponges, Tombow adhesive, dimensionals, Crystal Effects

Clarice is the latest pinkeye victim in our family.  Since she couldn't go to my friend's house to play, I had to take her with me to my hair appointment.  I used this opportunity to hand-deliver this very card to my hairdresser, Jamie.  When I walked into the hair salon Jamie was cutting my friend Marcey's hair.  I'm doing a workshop for Marcey this Thursday and needed to contact her today.  How weird is that?!?  Marcey and I caught up on some things regarding the workshop.  Then I joked that I'd have to make another rose card to display Thursday night.  Hmm, maybe I'll do the next one using So Saffron.

While I was getting my hair done Jamie told me that her mom had fallen a few weeks ago and broke her ankle in four places and will be recuperating for a few months.  She went on to say that her mom is going absolutely stir-crazy.  She's already done way too many crossword puzzles and needs something different to occupy her time.  Because she can't get around on her own, her boyfriend drops her off before work every morning with her elderly mother to be "babysat."  Then he picks her up after work.   ... So Jamie and I agreed that the best therapy is for her mom to make some cards!!!

Happy Stamping!
