Red Open Roses

Well, I am FINALLY back. LOL

Huge thank you to everyone who wished me well. It is a long story. but the good news is that the pain pump is now implanted and is helping a lot with the nerve pain. :) Praise the Lord!

I have had really bad spinal headaches since the pain pump was put in but I had a procedure today that patched the leak and should be better than ever by tomorrow. Yay!

I made this center step card with my handmade open roses as a thank you for a dear friend who sent me lots of encouragement. I used some Kaisercraft Porcelain Rose papers. ("Precious" and "Artifact") along with some Recollections pearl stickers. The flowers where cut from white cardstock and inked with Worn Lipstick and Barn Door Distress inks. I used the same colors in Distress Stains to color the seam binding.

You can find instructions, diagrams, templates, cut files and a video on how to make the center  step card here. (just scroll down to Center Step Card)

I have lots of cool projects already in the works.
