Lattice Roses

It's been a long week at work and I've had hardly any time to check my favorite blogs, so it was with relief that I finally made it into my craft room this afternoon.  I decided to combine the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches with the challenge at Just Add Ink, which is to Just Add Woodgrain.

I hope Narelle doesn't mind but I did substitute the leaves and bud for the banners at the bottom of the card.  In hindsight, I should have cut the circle higher up the card, and basically I was left with no room for banners, so I had to get creative!  

The card has a white base. I adhered the Lattice Die onto the base and then a woodgrain embossed layer using dimensionals.

The flowers and leaves all come from the Stippled Blossoms set.  I usually use the large roses, but today decided to go with the smaller roses and buds. Lots of fussy cutting here, let me tell you!

Thanks for looking.

Oh wow this is gorgeous Karren and I don't mind at all - you can interpret the sketch any way you like! LOVE woodgrain in white and the lattice effect behind your circle adds so much interest! The sweet little flowers top off this gorgeous card! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches and Just Add Ink this week! :)

Gorgeous Karren! I love the clean white space Woodgrain panel and the lovely colour combo you have used. Great use of Stippled Blossoms and the Lattice die in the negative space looks fabulous too! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink.

Very beautiful - I love the contrast between the busy latice and white woodgrain. Chantell JAI

I like the subtleness of your woodgrain embossing on this card and those flowers are just beautiful. Thanks for joining in our challenge this week at Just Add Ink.
