My friend loves cardmaking - so I wanted the card to showcase something special and unique. I quickly settled on the Rosette Cutting Plate. I love the fresh and clean look of this die. Then I stared at it for quite awhile trying to decide what I could do that might be unique for my fellow cardmaker. One of the many ideas that ran through my mind was to fill in the dies with paper - then I realized what would be fresh and clean would be to just fill in one flower!

Taylored Expressions: Celebrate with Rosettes
I often create cards and stash them away, but it's funny how rarely I dive into that stash because when it's for a special friend or occasion, I want to think of them while I create a unique card with just them in mind. That's today's card.
I love how this turned out. After I filled the single flower, it needed something bold for the sentiment - so settled on the Celebrate Script and added the black banner. I played around with watercoloring or sponging the background. I liked the attempts but wanted to keep the fresh, white look so just added some embossed polka dots.
I found the perfect inside sentiment in The Inside Scoop - Birthday then actually got a little giddy when I remembered that there was a Bloomers die that matched the Rosette flowers. I don't often decorate my insides - I don't know why, it's extra special when I see other people do it. But I definitely wanted an extra special card so I added the flower plus an open leaf from another Bloomers set. A simple little touch that made a big difference!
Hey friend - I know you watch my blog. I hope you have received this card already. I miss our coffee time, let me know next time you are in Parker!!
