Craft Us Crazy and at For Fun Challenges. That is my favorite kind of challenge because we are free to enter anything new we are working on. I saw a card similar to this on one of the blogs I look at everyday and decided to try it for myself. The one I saw (sorry - cannot remember exactly where I saw it) - used different dp under each cut out part of the rose (embossing folder from Stampin' up). But I found this red with black lacey dp piece and decided I liked it under all the cut out holes. I love finding a different way to use a punch or diecut or embossing folder. In this case, after embossing a white piece of cardstock, you simply use a craft knife to cut away some of the rose pieces for this CAS but lovely look. I added the sentiment, rounded the edges and attached to a black card to finish.
