Enjoy Today

I'm so honored to have been a Stamplorations Top Pick in April giving me this opportunity to Guest Design. The theme for June is Stamps & Washi--a no-brainer for some of you. However, I'm one of those people with a Washi collection that is seldom used, so this was indeed a challenge for me!  
I kept things pretty simple by using this narrow, inexpensive K&Co tape as a frame for the beautiful Stamplorations rose. Black & white can be elegant & striking & works great for those of us who are "coloring challenged"--LOL! The rose is covered with silver Wink of Stella, giving a lovely glimmer. Lace is one of my favorite embellishments, so I enjoyed working a little piece into my design. Finished off with black enamel dots.  I love receiving & sending cards that aren't expected, so this one is headed to surprise a blogging friend.  Thank you, Stamplorations, for allowing me to join your talented DT this month!
Hope to see lots of my blogging friends in the gallery.  Remember, you don't have to use Stamplorations products & you might win some! Stamplorations stamps: Sketched: Rose & sentiment from Trendy Butterflies.
Speaking of roses, I'll leave you with a photo of one called "Breathless" & in person it truly lives up to it's name.  Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.
