Romantic Wild Roses

Hello Everyone!  Are you ready to get romantic......about Romantic Wild Roses that is!  This is the brand new set released by JustRite Papercraft and it's a two-step stamp set which you can use to create beautiful cards for any number of occasions!

As you can see, this set doesn't come with any sentiments, so use it on its own, or use your favourite sentiment set!  I decided to make a Get Well card for today's card.  Just over a month ago, my Dad suffered two strokes and landed in the Acute Stroke Unit with three other people.  One of these is a lady called Patty.  We became friendly with Patty and her sister-in-law while they were in the ASU together and when the time came they both moved to the Rehabilitation Unit which is where they both are today.  I made this card for Patty as a little thing to cheer her up.  I'm taking Dad chocolate which I *know* will make him happy!  :)

I've used a base of Pool Party and layered with Kraft and Tropical Punch DP.  Next I've added a strip of white and topped with more Pool Party randomly stamped using Romantic Wild Roses and Versamark Ink.  Around this I've attached some ribbon.  Next I cut a piece of white with Spellbinders Labels Twenty Eight and started constructing my image out of the various pieces in the Romantic Wild Roses stamp set.  I've used a variety of Memento Inks - Angel Pink, Rose Bud, New Sprout, Bamboo Leaves, Cantaloupe.  I then lightly added some BG0000 Copic ink around the image and edges.  I've stamped the sentiment from Fancy Large Sentiments in Rose Bud.  I've framed it with Baked Brown Sugar cut with Decorative Labels Twenty Eight and popped it up on foam tape.  To finish I've added a bow and some lemon pearls.

Oh, Kathy, what a beautiful card, and I love the DP you've used and your great layout! And I am so sorry your dear dad has suffered a stroke. Praying he will do well in rehab. And how sweet that Patty and he are in rehab together...sure makes it nicer when you have a friend (who is working at the same goal) with him. How precious you are to make this beautiful card for her...and chocolates for dad!! Hugs!

This is extra super pretty, Kathy, and I know Patty will love and appreciate it. I hope she recovers as well as your dad has. He's a real miracle! So glad to hear he's home now!

Your card is lovely. You used the stamps very creatively. I'm sorry your Dad had a stroke. I fell while in the hospital and broke my pelvis in three places plus I broke my shoulder. I was in an acute rehab facility for awhile with stroke victims. I came to have a new appreciation for the work they must do to recover but I saw it happen. I will pray for your Dad.

I love the look you created with this new stamp set. The flowers are beautiful and really complete the card.
