Saturday is my Simple and Serious Stampers Swap Club meeting. Our swap theme this month is female birthdays. I knew I wanted to use my brand new Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set for my card, so I went to the gallery at SCS to get some mojo and inspiration. Well I fell in love with this card by Karmagirl and knew I had to case it. I colored the rose with my baja ink pad and aquapainter. I did not have any chocolate chip corduroy buttons like Jodi put on her card, but I loved the look. Soooo...I created my own "button look" by punching out buttons with my 3/4" circle punch. I used my new whisper white organza ribbon, and added sparkle to the rose with dazzling diamonds. Thanks, Jodi, for inspiring this beautiful card.
