Stop ... and smell the roses!

Hi there

Sorry this posting is late today but I'm on vacation and have been sightseeing through the gorgeous Rocky Mountains!  Wow - they are something to behold!

Anyways, I have a free moment to do my PaperWorksCo 'Anything But a Card' posting for the Sundays throughout August.  I have some real treats in store for you and it starts off with this Tealight Holder Card.  I followed a great tutorial off youtube (the link is over on the PWCO posting so be sure to check it out)!!

I have coloured a sweet RAM image with copics and the paper is Bo Bunny 'Love Bandit' collection.  This gorgeous double-sided paper is perfect for projects like this.  I have embossed the acetate sheet which covers the tealights as it gives the project a more professional finished look!

The sentiment is a $1.50 stamp from Michaels which I stamped on one of the Spellbinders fancy tags.  The rose and leaves (MS Rose leaf punch) are the final touch.

Here you can see the fully coloured image which I used a nesties circle and created a tag to pop into the pocket.

Thanks for stopping in today and seeing my project.  PaperWorksCo has begun a new month of challenges for August so you need to participate if you want to receive free stamps (or the Papercardkit)!
