Today’s card fit both challenges in Sharon Johnson’s blog party “Stamp Simply Celebrates” Day 5.


I used and old set called Cottage Roses.  And even though it is a retired set, it felt close to the same style as the roses in the designer paper.  I don’t have the inks in the in-colors, so I used Ruby Red and Old Olive.  They were a pretty close match to the Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss.  At least they didn’t seem to clash!

Here are the details for Sharon’s celebratioin for FRIDAY, DECEMBER 5:
