Gray Rose

Hi and welcome!  Today's card is for the latest challenge at Freshly Made Sketches where our hostess is Narelle Farrugia.  Check out her fun sketch:

I made this card for a crafty friend who has suffered a loss.  I thought the gray roses provided a sombre note while the single yellow note added a touch of colour and hope.

I used Vintage Roses and the new Add-On set to create my flowers and foliage, using both the Rock Collection and Summer Afternoon ink sets by Altenew.  After I arranged the elements and adhered them to a Grout Gray stitched circle, I added the grouping to a white card base.

The sentiment was white embossed onto a black stip and added with foam tape.

I didn't add any embellishments because I didn't want it to look glitzy.

Head on over and check out the rest of the design team's cards - they're all gorgeous!

I'm adding this card to the CAS Plants challenge at Paper Players.
