Ruby...but in bluey green...

Hey everyone....isn't it baltic today?  The temperature it tells me just now is -1 which is warmer than it was first thing...was -3 then!!

 I have had to turn the heating up a wee bit too as Pepper got home from the vets yesterday and has most of her undercarriage shaved off...poor pooch!!  She was diagnosed over Christmas as having cancer so she has been poked and prodded to see what they can we are waiting on further test results coming back before a final decision will be made. :(

Now I had half made this card between last night and this morning ready for pouncing on the postie today with my new it!!  I also did try to go for another colour but I somehow coloured in blue...will save the pink for another day.

So the papers are from MME - Nutmeg collection which I layered onto bazzill card and distressed the edges, the stamp is from Personal Impressions which I coloured with copics, the flourish die is from Magnolia and the flower die is my new die-namics rolled hybrid heirloom rose received today, thank you Kitty!! I finished with some stickles and some tiny pearls made with my pearl pen.

papers - MME Indie Chic Nutmeg - stash
stamp - Personal Impressions Gorjuss Girl Ruby - stash
sentiment - stash
dies - Magnolia flourish - stash
dies - MFT Mini Hybrid Heirloom rolled Rose - My Mum's Craft Shop
