Viva la Verve

Janelle has a versatile sketch for this week's Viva la Verve challenge in the forum on SCS. I used some papers from a new pad (yes...I caved when I visited Mike's today and saw two new MME pads...sigh!).  I think you might get tired of seeing these roses on my cards...just LOVE the hybrid heirloom rose die from MFT!  I think I got a bum large Romantic Rectangle die, because I can't seem to get a good cut no matter what sandwich I run through the Big Shot.  I didn't want to waste the sides which cut OK so I pieced them together to form this border, then layered two more Retro Border dies by MFT.  The leaves are a die cut by Cheery Lynn Designs.

STAMPS: Treasured Words (Verve)
PAPER: "In Bloom" 6x6 pad by MME, White, Basic Gray
INK: Basic Gray, So Saffron (to sponge edges of rose)
ACCESSORIES: Basic Gray satin ribbon (SU), Heart charm, Romantic Rectangle Nestie, Fern die by Cheery Lynn Designs, Hybrid Heirloom Rose Die-Namic by MFT, Retro Squares border Die-Namic by MFT.

Just love this! Have my eye on that die big time! Gorgeous flower and card. So happy Mike's is carrying MME now though very pricey so just with a coupon for me. Great card!

Love those mini hybrid roses too!! Think the rectangle die just cuts like that-I've had to run through a couple times-have heard to try wax paper in dies, not sure if that would work for this prob!! Love the card!!
