Manhattan Flower

I made up a bunch of different colors with the Brayered Debossing technique that Patty Bennett revived using my Manhattan Flower Textured Impressions Die.  Having these on hand is nice when I need to make a card quickly.  My husband asked for a birthday card for his assistant the night before (of course!) he needed it.  I love lavender roses and thought these looked pretty close to the real thing! 

The base card is Perfect Plum.  I used the Brayered Debossed roses in Perfect Plum, Pale Plum and Regal Rose, cut it out around the outlines and adhered to a layer of Whisper White.  I wrapped some Plum Wide Organdy Ribbon (retired) around and added a Birthday Wishes tag using the Key Tag Punch and Sincere Salutations stamp set..  Then I adhered it to the Perfect Plum base card.  I added 1/4 circles in the upper left and lower right to add some interest to the blank areas.  Pretty simple and it came together quickly!

Have you ever had those kind of days where it takes FOREVER to do one or two cards?  Yesterday was that day while I was working on my Tour de Freaks Blog Hop items for Saturday!  I hope to have my mojo back today and can get more things done than I did yesterday!

Have a great day!
