Just Magnolia challenge

Morning! Hope you're all well! The sun is shining here today which is nice after yesterdays torrent of rain! I finally managed to make a card, feeling a bit burnt out lately and can't seem to muster the willpower to do much of anything and my mojo seems to have gone too! I needed to make a card for my parents' wedding anniversary though and wanted to join in with the Just Magnolia challenge where this week they would like to see hand made flowers.

I have used this gorgeous Tilda with bunch of roses stamp, it is so beautiful and perfect for an anniversary card I think. I also wanted to use my Stempelglede heart stamps though so decided to cut Tilda out and have the heart in the centre!

I stamped and embossed the flourish heart in gold directly onto the card first and then stamped and embossed again onto the red backing paper and cut out the centre which has then been raised on foam pads over the original for dimension.

I decided to try to make a rose like the ones here but didn't have the correct punches so have made mine using the EK success retro flower punch which wasn't very successful as the gaps between the petals are too big. I used the red backing paper again and embossed it in gold with a flourish stamp first.

The inside is decorated with matching papers and I embossed another heart and added a blank oval ready for a message.
Thanks for looking! Enjoy your day! I'm puppet making this afternoon at my Son's school....should be fun LOL!
