Valentines Roses and a Kiss Kiss card

Yes, for Valentines Day I received a gorgeous bouquet of roses from the cutest 9 year old and 6 year old boys in the world!!! (I am NOT prejudice) The colors are so amazing and I figured I needed to get a photo so I could share some of the goodness.
I have so much wonderful paper in my stash to use so I thought it was time to pull out this great Graphic 45 paper and use it for a fun card.
I don't remember where I saw this first, but I just had to copy the idea - my Martha Stewart border punch using black cardstock! YUM!
Here is a close-up peek at my fun flowers. They are punched from another pattern of the Graphic 45 papers. Punches, machine sewing, paper distressing, inking with stamp pads, buttons and brads created these cuties.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
