Good morning all.

   Thank goodness the weather had dulled over a bit yesterday....I managed to stay indoors and get some housework done!!

A card today for a swap with the theme of roses.

Using a topper from a card I wasn't happy with, the image is a rubber stamp (but as I can't find it atm I can't tell you who it's by) which I've die cut with a scalloped nestie. The dies for the layers are from Marianne Design. Pearls and bow are from my stash.
