How is your weekend going?
I'm heading back into work this afternoon so mine could be better :)
Afternoonshift is completely kicking my butt after being on nights for so many years. Getting up to an alarm sucks yo!
I'm thrilled you all are so excited about CASEing Genius! I can't wait for Monday! You're going to love our first Genius. I sure do!!
I was blessed enough to win Altenew's monthly challenge for September and I knew exactly what I wanted to buy with my gift card. The first time I saw their Sketchy Rose I was smitten. A large outline flower?! Please and thank you.
Then when I saw Altenew's monthly challenge for October I had the prefect place to use it!
Those little cluster of red roses were the perfect inspiration!! How serendipitous no?
I'm also entering my card into Addicted to CAS's current challenge
Ready, set go . . .
So I love the flower but I'm not sure I love the card. Let me explain. I wanted the rose to be the focal point but I wanted more of an elegant 2014 Angelina Jolie and I feel like I ended up with an Angelina Jolie circa 2000, blood vial and all. (Oh please tell me you remember that?!) What I mean is it stole the show SO much the rest of the card looks like too little and I couldn't fix it.
I heat embossed the sentiment from Altenew's Magnolias for her in gold and framed the vellum window in.
What do you think? Flower too over powering? Or have I just been looking at this thing way too long ha!
Thanks for stopping by!
