We've got a new challenge for you at CUTplorations, based on this gorgeous inspiration graphic. I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I got the A Cup Of Roses stamp, but it didn't quite go to plan on account of I stamped the image askew on the card, so I had to fussy cut it. But it all came good in the end, and in fact I like this version better than the one I had planned.
I think you can guess which of the three inspiration images caught my attention! I'm trying to deplete my mountainous stash of patterned paper, and this piece happened to be on my desk, unused. It makes the perfect background for the cup of roses. I cut the panel using the middle-sized Crazy Double Running Stitched Rectangle die, then cut the happy in blue and maroon and offset layered them. The birthday sentiment is stamped in Brilliance Moonlight White on black card.
