A Rose For You

Hello Blogger Friends. Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit today with The Charmed Life Blog.
It's Memorial Day weekend and the unofficial start of summer. The weather today is sunny and warm so it's starting off on a good note. We don't have any plans for a cookout.
I will be busy getting my projects ready for our 2nd week of summer camp at Preschool. It's Lego week and I have come up with some cute ideas to keep the kids busy for 3 hours. But it will involve a lot of prep work so my weekend will be busy.
For my card for today, I am featuring one that I made for the color challenge #735 on Splitcoaststampers. Karen was the hostess and she chose lovely lipstick, mint macaron and vanilla for her color trio. Optional was to add a rose to our card.
lovely lipstick, very vanilla, mint macaron
I am using a new to me set from Altenew. The beautiful rose image is part of the "just for you" stamp set. The set is multi-layer stamping. I stamped off using lovely lipstick ink to get a variant. The leaves are stamped in mint macaron and again I stamped off to get the color variant.

My background is stenciled with the Altenew halftone stencil in mint macaron ink. I stamped the just for sentiment and wet embossed. The "You" word is part of this set and I used lovely lipstick cardstock.

To finish off my card. I scattered a few mint macaron enamel dots. And, that's it for me for this post. So until next time...….God bless.
