Charisma Roses

I've spent a lovely peaceful afternoon on my own crafting and playing with some new dies and new CD that I bought a couple of weeks ago from Create and Craft. It was from the Charisma Range from Tattered Lace, which was released last year, when I managed to resist buying them. However just after Christmas I caved in and bought some. Now pink is not a colour that I would normally go for but I loved the colour of the these roses. So after a rummage through my stash I found some pink card and pink glitter paper too. I teamed them up with some silver mirri card, the corners and the sentiment came out of some off cuts I had in a scraps box. I used dies from Marianne for the corners and Sue Wilson for the Happy Birthday. The roses were printed onto some matt photo paper and then cut out with the Tattered lace die. I used glue gel for the layers after giving them a bit of a shape with a ball tool.

Tomorrow I'm off to my first Craft Show of the year. It's just a small one at Newbury Racecourse, but I know I'll bump into some crafty friends there too.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
