More Good News.....whoohoo!

Evening everyone, hope you're having a good 'middle of the week' day.......it'll soon be Friday, although I am NOT wishing my life away.
I've had some good news today.....you know how I'm guesting on Oak House Studio blog, for the month of February, well Lynnda (the owner) has invited me to be a permanent member of the Design Team....I'm thrilled to bits.....I said YES of course!
I've already had some great fun using the fabulous products from OHS, and I have another few cards to show you, using the lovely Sunflower stamp.....(would be great for Mother's day cards)  Watch out for another giveaway coming soon, on the OHS Facebook page.
On tonight's card I've used a few products from OHS.
 


The background (of every element) has been made with 'Linen' card from Papermill, inked with  a selection of Ink Sprays, Here . I then ran the card though the Bigshot with an embossing mask.

I stamped the lovely 'floral' script onto a piece of inked card, and heat embossed the edges.
I chucked a bit of EP around the edges too. 
 Rolled a few roses, cut and embossed the leaves with a Spellbinders die and dyed some ribbon to match.....voila!



When I opened up the pics to do this blog, I wasn't keen on the finished card, something was missing (see pic above) So.....I made another rose and stuck it on, to balance the opposite corner. Thought I'd leave the 'old' pic on, to show you what I mean.





Now I'm happy with it! 
What do you think?









Hope you like it. I seem to have returned to my fave colours don't I, but hey....I craft to please myself, most of the time, so why not use the colours I love ?
Catch you in a day or so, until then, be good!
Barbara xx
