A Rosy Happy Birthday

Welcome to the Studio!
It's time to get your scrap on and enter the Link Up For Pink Challenge #10.  There is an inspiration photo to help you get started.  I can't wait to see all the creative things y'all come up with.

Here the photo:
And here's my take on it...
The flowers in the comforter and the color on the walls are what inspired me.  I was messing around during a recent scrapbook retreat and learned how to make these little roses using two Tim Holtz Sizzix dies, Tattered Florals and Tattered Pincone.  The pinecone is the rolled center and the medium size flower from the Tattered Florals is two layers on the bottom.  The paper I used is from Echo Park, Hello Summer by Lori Whitlock.  To make the leaves, I used a McGill punch.  The chevron borders were cut out using the Zing and Make the Cut.  The cute little tickets are "That's the Ticket" from Stampin Up as well as the coordinating ticket punch.
To me, this card represents something we should all look forward to, the future.  Whether it's fighting a nasty disease, going through financial difficulties, losing a loved one, or getting a divorce, we all need to remember that God is with us and will give us the strength we need to come out on the other side; we just need to be patient. 
I hope you enjoyed your visit.  Until next time, Scrap Sassy!

Love You...

Welcome to the Studio!

It was definitely time to get a Valentine's Day card made, so I decided to share a little love with my friends over at Link Up For Pink.

This is just a simple, flowery, blingy little card.  I used Carta Bella's Paris Girl paper collection.  My flower is several different mulberry flowers from Prima and Michael's with a little Tattered Angels Marshmallow spritzed on top for fun, although it's a bit hard to see.  The bling is actually cut from a long border strip.  The seam binding is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Valentine Hugs to all those fighting the battle against breast cancer.
