Pretty Emma

Hello dear blog friends,

I made this card with one of my new Lili of the Valley stamps “Emma with pot plant”. She is so cute with her little doggy and as I love roses I couldn’t resist to ink this little stamp as soon as possible. The little potted rose she holds  gave me the idea to use my Cottage Cutz dies for the garden pots and to fill them up with lots of little pink roses to match the image. Somehow I am not very happy how this card came out but I accept the fact that I never make a card that is perfect  in every way!

I enter my card in the following challenges:

The inside of the card with little butterflies and another fence.

A potted rose and little pink butterflies in Emma’s rose garden

And here is pretty Emma with one of her prize rose plants on her way to a friend’s birthday party. Patches her little dog is wondering if he can go with!

 Project details:

  • White and pink cardstock
  • Queen of Hearts pink polka dot paper
  • Lili of the Valley stamp “Emma with Pot Plant”
  • Lili of the Valley sentiment stamp
  • Go Kreate Die No 360003 XXL Square Frame Frilly #3
  • Jeart Craft die Lace#53 “Fence”
  • Marianne Design Creatables LR 0106
  • Martha Stewart punch “Classic butterflies”
  • Cottage Cutz die sets “Garden Bench” and “Topiary” (I used only the pots)
  • Lyra-Rembrandt Aquarelle water-colour pencils
  • Paper roses
  • Skwiglues “Crystal”
  • Gemstones

Thanks for visiting today and I hope you enjoy reading this blog post. I would love to know what you think about my card – I will also enjoy reading the “not so good” ones … LOL. Have a wonderful day and see you in blogland.

Regards from South Africa.

Amelia

    Hi Amelia. This is a terrible card! GOT YOU!!! Of course it’s stunning as usual, and I have no idea why you are not happy with it! I wish I could make cards like yours … they always have such a unique ‘touch’ and this one is no exception. I absolutely adore the way you added the pots and the roses. Well done.

    It’s really cute! I like the idea of “potting” all those paper roses! What manufacturer makes those little beauties? I have a tough time finding any tiny roses or flowers that look decent. Look forward to seeing more! jgarber5@cox.net

    Dear Amelia
    A beautiful card with the pink roses and the frame with the image in the centre.
    The whole concept including the inside is a WOW.
    Good Luck.

    I love it Amelia! Right up my street – it has such clean unfussy lines and the focus is on the pretty little girl and the pot plants with roses. Very clever using the pots to display the roses. I may well ‘borrow’ the idea…. lol!
    Really pretty card.
