Rosy Hello

I'm happy to say I got back into my craft room again tonight after dinner and made another card.  This card uses the inspiration photos at both Fusion and Shabby Tea Room as well as the sketch at Just Us Girls.


I love the colors in the inspiration photo at Fusion so that was the starting point for this card.  I then figured out how to incorporate the sketch from Just Us Girls, which I'd been pondering for days.  Finally, the Shabby Tea Room is looking for romantic cards incorporating roses.  This might not be romantic but it does incorporate roses so I'll link up there too.

My card base is Basic Gray and the Calypso Coral panel is cut with the Large Scallop Edgelit.  The Whisper White panel was stamped in Smoky Slate and Basic Gray using the leaf spray from Embroidered Blooms.  I then stamped the sentiment in Calypso Coral and cut the panel into three pieces.  The embellishments include three rolled roses, some linen thread and two white feather die cuts, which came from my Merry Monday Secret Santa.  Here's a close-up:


I'm hoping to make a card using the Fusion sketch as well before the deadline.  We'll see!

Thanks for looking.
