Roses are Red

Wow, shock horror, I've actually blogged!!!!!
For today's card I've used my trusty Groovi board.......again! Yes I know I have a slight obsession with this piece of equipment.
1: Stamp your image in the centre of a piece of parchment and leave to dry.
2: Using the A5 Groovi board, from the Clarity Groovi Club, emboss the letter boxes and fill with your chosen wording.
3: Using the the Ovals Nested Groovi Plate, emboss the largest oval and the oval that just touches the letter boxes.
4: Fill the in between area of the ovals using the Sprig Pattern Groovi Plate.
5: Using Lace Groovi Border Plate 1, go around the edge of the outer oval.
6: Using Groovi Border Plate 2, emboss a frame around the design with the double line.
7:Carefully cut away the centre oval, leaving in the image and words.
8: Colour on the reverse with pencils (I've used Spectrum Noir Pencils)
9: On a separate piece of parchment, emboss a sentiment from the Occasions Border plate.
10: Emboss a decorative line, leaving a gap where the sentiment lies (I've used the rope from Border plate 2)
11: Mat & layer and mount onto an A5 card.
