Rose Happy Birthday

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Hope you are staying warm in your neck of the woods. It's still cold here and tomorrow more snow is coming.
But, the cold didn't keep me away from my work-out routine. Today was my work-out day at my gym. I still have been going 3x a week. It helps to have a team of 5 women that I work out with regularly. We keep each other accountable.
For me, if I know the other girls will be there it makes me want to go. We are still working out 1 day a week with our trainer, Josh. The other 2 days we just do the routine he has us on. Today there were only 3 of us, but we had a good work out.
Josh has us on a routine where we work with weights for strength. He has us doing core exercises to help improve our balance and stability. And then we do some cardio to help burn calories and build endurance. 
Now, onto my card for today. I have been wanting to try the embossing folder stamping technique. Here is a link to a great tutorial.
 I used the wavy hearts embossing folder from Darice and inked it with picked raspberry and spun sugar distress paints. I then sprayed it with gold glimmer mist. I really like the way the background turned out.
My flower is from the PaperTrey Ink set "cutting garden". Stamped in picked raspberry ink and cut with the matching die. To complete my card I stamped the birthday sentiment and added some bold pink ribbon.
I also made this card for the SCS IC480 challenge. Audrie, our hostess, took us to the Crystal Gayle Photography site for our inspiration. Fabulous site and I looked in every category at her lovely work.

For my inspiration I chose this single pink rose card. I focused on the single flower and the pretty pink color for my card.

That's it for me for today. So until next time.......God bless.
