As William Wallace Would Say....

....Aye, fight and you may die. Run, and you'll live... at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take... OUR FREEDOM!

Now I know Lady Lim Chrissie and Diva Mandi of Less Is More fame are not the enemy (they're quite nice really) but they are stressing me out BIG time - red and orange!!! My inner goth is crying out for valium.

So I've got through the battle even if I've not won the war. I've made my first ever rolling roses using scraps of Pink Petticoat papers in the aforementioned colours. The leaves are from a My Mind's Eye stamp and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

I'm also entering my card into:

The Card Caravan - Hand made flowers
The Squirrel and The Fox - Hats or flowers

Thanks for looking a have a great weekend.

  4. You could have 'gothed' up your flowers a trifle by some sponging of their edges... but the card is just fab as it is!
