More Roses

I needed a card for some friends at church who are emigrating and this is what a came up with. It's pretty much based on last week's Color Room card sketch. The roses were cut on the Cricut and inked with Orchid Versacolour ink. The swirl and leaves are mostly Marriane Designs with a few Crealies. They are inked with SU Old Olive. The sentiment is computer generated. I was pleased with how this turned out. To me there's something very satisfying about creating something pretty from plain white card. Hope you're nice and cosy and enjoying your evening.

Edited to say - no Cricut cartridge I'm afraid. Roses were cut using a cut file purchased from the Digichick. You will need to use third party software such as Sure Cuts Alot or Make the Cut to cut on the Cricut. Good news is the file comes in different formats so if you own a Silhouette or Craft Robo you should still be able to use it.
