CASology: Week 131: Birthday!! and Inkspirational Challenge #75

May I just say that, even though it is still in Winter, I think February birthday cards are the most wonderful to make!  Who isn't thinking of hearts, flowers, and love in February?

When I saw this week cue word "Friend" at CASology this week, I had a very sweet and special friend in mind:


The cover panel was created with Paper Smooches stamp sentiments, stamped with a VERY new and juicy Versamark, then embossed in white.  A fun little rolled rose found inside my little to-use-later box kept close by on my desk.


A little close-up to give another peek at that background... I love how it turned out =]
 
Inkspirational Challenge #75 is calling for ROSE - just discovered!  Pleased to submit this little number there as well!
