Anniversary rose

What a day I had yesterday.
I had 'one of my days' that I get about once every 6 months. I can cope with breast cancer, I can cope with N-H Lymphoma, but ask me to cope with feeling sick and a banging headache and I have to take to my bed!
I'm always as right as rain the next day, thankfully. 
And right as rain I am! Yeah! 
(I'm good to go for about 6 months now)! LOL

here's a card I made today for two very good friends of mine.
(This proves I feel like my old self again).

Simple, but I think, effective.

The rose is from a Clearly Besottted's stamp set, 'Happy Everything'.
Coloured with Copics and die cut.
(The matching dies are also from Clearly Besotted Stamps). 
The sentiment is from a JustRite set 'Large Fancy Sentiments'.
I LOVE that font!
I embossed the base card with a Sizzix EF and as usual, 
It's a one of a pair of Sizzix Textured Impressions EFs by Brenda Walton..'Rose vines & Trellis'.
I embossed the card leaving a gap near the bottom. I used the Martha Stewart scoring board to score a line either side of the embossing where the sentiment is stamped.
I've entered this into Stephanie's challenge too.

Job done! Hope you like it. 

Thanks for dropping in, it's always good to have you visit me. xxxx

Oh bless you Viv!! I'm the same with Migraines - cannot handle them at all but (touch wood), I only get them once every six months too!! Stunning card and of course, I am always very happy and grateful to see your name pop up in the challenge - thank you :) xoxo
