"Growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional"

Hey folks, thanks for stopping by. Today's card is from the Fiskars "Make a wish quotes". . . . "growing up is mandatory, growing up is optional"... I love that quote! So I wanted to make it a bit whimsical with the overall design. So I borrowed this sketch....

For the base of the card I started with a basic white and added SU! Raspberry tart dsp(retired) for the second layer. Next I used SU! Red rose and used SU! scalloped edge punch, followed by another piece of Raspberry tart dsp. Then I whipped out my SU! Circle scissor plus tool to cut out the thin circle piece... that took several tries because I needed to secure the piece to my glass cutting mat more securely... learned that the hard Continuing with a piece of Pretty in pink 1/4" ribbon. For the sentiment portion of the card I wanted to add extra color by stamping in some flowers with SU! Eastern blossoms with Red rose ink and tittered it with some Pink pirouette to give it a two shade dimension and for the tricky part... I used the Kiwi kiss ink for the leaf part by covering the flowers with a posted and added them in.

I finished it up with filling in the flower with SU! Stampin' write summer sun ink pen. And last the Fiskars Make a wish quote by Chili Davis... I hope you like... tootles.
