Feb 15 challenge at the Crafter's Cafe

Lil patch of CaftyFriends
The current challenge at the Crafter's Cafe is to use embossing and/or fancy folds - take your pick!  I chose to emboss the background - this time, I embossed both the pink mat and the white layer using a Quick Cutz Vine folder.  The image is the Old Roses Frame  from our sponsor Morgan's Art World.  If you look at the other DT designs you will notice that I flipped the image - I think it works either way!  You will also notice that I am still struggling with coloring due to macular degeneration,  I used Twinkling H2O's for a shiny finish. This is inspired by the song "Red Roses for a Blue Lady".   I hope we see you at the challenge!

Conratulations Ethan and Rachel

This is a non traditional card for our grandson and his fiancee;s wedding. It is meant to mimic the non traditional invitation.   I hope they like it!  The tree is from a long time favorite Stampin' Up set, and the swirls are by Die Namics, Oh, yes, I finally figured out another way to use the Majestic Element ovals by Spellbiinders.  I cut the oval from the patterned paper, and inserted the cut oval back in to the space - the dark green background peeks through enough to show off the intricate design.

For Luther's family

Once again, I need a sympathy card.  This is for a family whose faith is strong, so I wanted to share a message proclaiming the peace and joy of the certainty of eternal life.  The verse is by Word Art, and I used papers from a stack called Faith.  The oval dies are from Spellbinders.
