Roses and Cards.....

Well another passion of mine is rose bushes and this week my four bushes have been putting on a beautiful show for me. I took several pictures this week of their beautiful blooms and thought I would share them with my readers....



Don't these roses looks so pretty.... I also have day lilies in full bloom and last night my husband let me get two new trees to go in my yard. I can't wait to put them in the ground... The trees are magnolias and I just love these trees and their blossoms they give off in the spring and summer time. We are hoping to do some yard work this afternoon and getting them in the ground...

Well on to my card design for the day.... I have a swap due in two weeks and this is what I have come up with...



I used Balloonabella from Stamping Bella. Here is a close up of her....

Supplies used stampin up watercolor paper, whisper white cs, regal rose cs, SU designer paper from winter mini. SU spritzer with regal rose marker, rose red marker, cameo coral marker. Stazon black ink pad and watercolor crayons with aquapainter. Crystal effects on balloons. And narrow silk ribbon from micheals to make french knot roses on dress...

This was a fun card to make... I now know what a difference it is to use watercolor paper with the crayons... I need to order more of this too.
