Guest Designing for Try Stampin' on Tuesday

Good Morning everyone!  On the 4th of July, I received a very pleasant email from CherylAnn of Try Stampin' On Tuesday asking me to be a Guest Designer. Wow!!  What a compliment.

So I accepted and what a great sketch this week to play with!  So my here's my challenge to you - play with Try Stampin' On Tuesday and Tuesday Morning Sketches (we have a great sketch, too) and start your Tuesday off with a bang!

Here's my card and I hope you like it because I am so super pleased with how this turned.  Who'da thought I could make something this pretty....

And I used a combination of several favorite companies.  The stamped sentiment is from Sweet n Sassy Stamps and the card stock for the rose is my favorite red from Raisin Boat.  The tiny roses are from The Beary Scrap.  How could I go wrong with those companies on my side?  Right?

I am particularly fond of this rose.  I bought an .svg from My Time Made Easy (another favorite) and was very intimidated by it.  I'm looking at 4 pieces and couldn't figure out the heck all this was supposed to go together.  Well, I dove in and that's what happened!  So pretty!!  (humble, right?)  For next time, I would highly recommend hot glue rather than Mono-Adhesive.  It would be quicker to set up that way.

I hope you try the sketch at Try Stampin' On Tuesdays - CherylAnn is very sweet lady!

Hey, humble is over-rated when you're turning out gorgeousness!
The sentiment is just such a perfect complement to the flowers, pearls, and ribbon. Gorgeous!
