Roses are red too!

Hello and Happy New Year. May God bless you with a healthy, happy New Year filled with His peace.
My first post of the year. Thanks for the applause :)
I’d embossed some white Fabriano card stocks with gorgeous Sizzix folders and left them on my messy table for inspiration. And this is what I came up with.

I love the strip of Scalloped border from Sizzix – Border and Hydrangeas. These work so well with Scrapbook layouts as well as cards. Don’t you think?
I’m stamping a sentiment directly on the Patterned Paper – it took away the stress of adding another strip of paper.
NOTE: If you want to emboss – always stamp and then emboss :)

Once I photographed this, I wanted to see what a bit more of green can do to this and this is where I arrived at
Though the green strip adds a bit more colour, I think right now I prefer the first version. What’s your take?

My new year resolution is not to buy anything other than Fabriano Elle Erre card stock and Memento inks if I run out of basics. And also to craft for pleasure. No deadlines this year. What is your crafty resolution?
For sale:
I got the Pebbles Ever After stamp for the roses. If you’d like to buy the other two stamps (flower branch and castle only), please email me (mail.craftyjcATgmailDOTcom)and we can talk.
