Christmas roses

Good morning folks

How are we all today? Getting on with your Christmas preparations? I am a little behind with my shopping due to the laryngitis but I have managed to get quite a few gifts on line which have now all been delivered. I still have cards to write (and make!!) but that is a job for this weekend. 
Enough of Christmas... back to crafting, When I saw the free gift with issue 157 of Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine I just had to buy it.
I am fairly new to Altenew stamps but love them already. This set included a die for the roses too which is always useful. I stamped onto Sheena stamping card using Memento inks and then cut out the flowers with the die. 
For my card I used - 

  • Sheena stamping card (for stamping and the card base)
  • Memento inks
  • Tonic Nuvo drops - bright gold
  • tumbled glass distress ink
Thank you for stopping by today.
