Yellow Roses

Hi everyone, what do you think about this weather then, lovely isn't it although I will admit it is a tad hot for me, I just can't take it anymore especially when I am having a 'power surge'! It is quite nice at the moment here in Birmingham with a lovely breeze and it's not raining so I am not complaining too much. 

My post today was made for this months RAK (randon act of kindness) card, I belong to a small little club and we send a card in every month and get a card back just because which is lovely especially if you are having a 'not nice' day and your RAK card arrives on the carpet, always cheers me up.

So I started with a C5 white card, I matter another piece of white card after embossing it with tumbling leaves A4 embossilicious folder and distress ink - antique linen.

I then stamped my background stamp using yellow pearlescent ink and die cut them both out with a spellbinders die.  The backing stamp was from a large set I bought some years ago.

My three yellow roses are a La Grande rose foam stamp and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Tropic Yellow Lustre Embossing Powder.  I cut them out and backed them onto brown pearlescent card and also punched 4 pieces of the same brown card with a circle punch.  All topped off with some little brown pearls.

Hope you like it.  Take care in this heat.  See you all soon.
