Rockin' & Rollin'

This week's CAS challenge is to use the rock & roll technique. I made this quick card using Cameo Coral and Ruby Red on my image.

Forgive me if I don't post much for the next couple of weeks. The school year is winding down, which not only makes life much busier for me, but I've been feeling mentally and physically drained lately. I'm looking forward to summer break, not only to recharge my creative batteries, but also because I've got some exciting stuff planned for the ol' blog. Stay tuned...

Stamps: Winnefred St. (Heidi Grace), A Little Birthday Cheer (SU)
Paper: Cameo Coral textured, Ruby Red, PTI white

Ink: Cameo Coral, Ruby Red
Accessories: Nestabilities circles, corner rounder punch, pearl (Kaisercraft), dimensionals

Cool technique. Your card is great and the sentiment is perfect! I'm sure you're drained after a long school year and you deserve some time off. I can't wait to see what you have in store for your blog!!

What a neat flower image. The rock and roll technique really does this justice. I also like that you used the cameo. That's one of my least used colors even tough I actually like it.

I understand about taking a break. I love your blog and I will visit whether you post once a day or once a week.
