Die Cut Dreams Challenge Blog sketch


I recently made a set of notecards as a birthday present for my sister-in-law, and she absolutely loved them. My sister's birthday is coming up in July, so I've decided to make another batch for her. I followed the Die Cut Dreams Challenge Blog sketch to make the first card and think it turned out lovely. 

I was particularly happy with how the stamped image turned out. It was actually too wide to fit in the circle, so I masked off the edges, and wonders of wonders, it worked!

Recipe:

My Mind's Eye So Sophie papers
C'ordinations Pearls paper, red
Martha Stewart border punch
Stampin' Up stamp from Bliss collection

Recollections red roses
