Paper Roses

Good evening my crafty friends and followers

Whew what a busy day I have had today.  I was at a craft show today helping my friend Kay Rutter (Hougie Board creator) at Leigh and it was an early start 6.00 to set up so I was up at 4.30 and I am shattered now but I wanted to post this card that I made the other day.  You might be wondering why I called this "Paper Roses" well I was inspired by the song sung by Marie Osmond in 1973.  I wonder how many of you were fans of the Osmond like myself!!!!


Recipe & Method

1.  Base card is from Kanban Crafts.  The first layer is also from Kanban their new Candy core card.  I have cut out using Spellbinder scalloped circle then embossed using the new double sided Mbossabilites from Spellbinders.  I have then sanded off the first layer and inked with Dew Drops VersaMagic Aloe Vera.
2.  I cut out an oval using Spellbinder die and stamped the flower girl from Elisabeth Bell.  I have coloured her in using my watercolour pencils.  I then used Sakura glitter pen to draw faux stitching around the embossed oval.
3.  The swirls are made up of die cuts from Memory Box.  I have then added lilac paper roses from my stash as well as the sentiment which reads "Best Wishes".



Thank you for Stopping by Today
Hugs
