Elegant and Majestic...

Hi Everyone,
... those are the names of two of the dies I used on this card - Majestic Labels 25 and Elegant Labels 4, together with Cheery Lynn's Fanciful Flourish and an MFT rolled rose die. I haven't made rolled roses in such a long time, I had forgotten how relaxing it is to make your own flowers, whether rolled or otherwise. It also allows you to match your flowers to your project by choosing your papers to compliment. I also used my Print Magic embossing powder in Midnight Blue by Debbie Moore for the first time and was pleasantly surprised with the result. It has been hiding away in my drawer and been overlooked for too long. It has a wonderful sparkle to it, you can just see it in this photo I think.

Happy Crafting!
