Linen Roses


Three of my favorite smells:
1. Babies just after a bath
2. Crushed leaves in the fall
3. Grandma's Linen Closet

The roses are stamped in linen ink and I just remember the smell of my Grandmother's closet and the anticipation it brought when she opened it...it meant that we got to sleep over at her house!  The card featured this week CASE Study this week really inspired my creation today.



 I was drawn to the kraft and black, the tone on tone background and the pearls. I had a separate panel set to go but after I adhered it, the entire card just looked "off" so off it went!



***Enabling Alert***

  16. Gorgeous card! So soft and lovely. I read this post right after I gave my 4 month old charge a bath and you're right, it's one of the best smells!! (he did promptly spit up everywhere and we had to change his shirt 2x before it was out, but hey, those few seconds were heavenly!! LOL!).

    Gorgeous card, I can't seem to think of another word. It's perfect!
