Sweet Rose Bouquet

Hello everyone,

I have a couple of cards to share today, a variation on the same theme. Smaller photos don’t do these cards justice, so please bear with me putting three larger photos here:

I used the Altenew ‘Sweet Rose Bouquet’ onto a blush card for the first, and white card for the second. Both the sentiments are cut from a Tonic gold card which was part of the most recent Tonic craft box.

The embossed impression on the second card is from a die set from Sue Wilson ‘Greek Island Background’ for some additional interest in the corners.

Putting these together took some thought as to placement of the flowers, and the placement of the gold card, but I am pleased how they turned out. I have another two pieces of card I stamped these flowers onto – I suppose they are going into my ‘bit box’. I really must stop adding to this box, and start using the items in it.

I did some cards previously as part of another challenge, and I still haven;t got around to using what I left out…….perhaps this weekend?

I shall be entering the following challenges:

  1. Linda, this card is so beautiful and elegant. I love Altenew stamps as well, but here it is the color you have chosen combined with gold that steals my heart. Thanks for playing in our challenge this week at Watercooler Wednesday! I am delighted you did.

  2. Oh my goodness, Linda, these cards are simply breathtaking! I love that Altenew rose and your wonderful colouring. The shading gives the image a real 3-D effect. It certainly works well both with the background embossing and without. The metallic framing and sentiments are perfect! Great work! Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

    Oh, and we all keep adding to our “bit box”. It’s all part of crafting. šŸ˜‰
