Pink Roses

Hello, hope you have all had a good day. I went off this morning to a craft shop to pick up some copies of the Do Craft Magazine for myself and another couple of friends. I went with a friend and we stopped on the way home and had a coffee and a chat. The weather was reasonable so got some of the pile of washing done. Hubby went off to work early this morning and didn't get home till after 6 p.m. A very long, tiring, physical day for him and he was fairly sore and very tired when he got home. I would have thought his bosses could have given him a job driving a crane instead of having him do physical work - those ribs and shoulder blade probably need at least another couple of weeks of healing!
I went off to choir practise tonight and when I came home, he was already asleep and snoring, LOL.
I watched a bit of tv and finished off my card to share today, so here is what I did.
I used SU Night of Navy and one of my Nesties to diecut a cardbase. I also cut one in the DP and then adhered it to a piece of white card and trimmed around it before attatching it to the card base. The image I used is from Flonz Stamps, inked in Basic Grey and coloured with Copic Markers. I really like this image and have used it before on one of my earlier posts. I used a circle nestie to cut the image out and then cut a scallop circle out of the Night of Navy. The sentiment is from SU Curly Cute - inked in Cherry Cobbler and trimmed. I backed it with more of the Navy card and trimmed again. I diecut 2 more shapes, one in white and the other in the DP for the inside of the card.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Make It Monday Linky Party - #84 Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion Challenge - Challenge 105 - Shaped Cards, not square or rectangle. I hope this one meets the criteria
Stampalot Challenge - April Challenge - Happy Birthday
