A Rose Creation

I'm combining two challenges into the one card.  They are

The Pink Elephant #162  to create own embellishments

Crafty Sentiment Designs  to use flowers

Since making this post I've been invited to show the card at Word Art Wednesday

I love this style of card but I'm not so good at pulling everything together.  I'm hoping that it's not ott on the pink as it's for a ruby wedding anniversary

The backing paper that I used was an A4 landscape design with the opposite corners being printed with the rose design.  I used the top right hand corner of it by cutting it out and placing it onto the top right hand corner of the card. I coloured both the doily and the cotton lace with a light fawn Flexmarker


I used the Spellbinder's Rose creator dies to make the flower which is held together by a brad which I have covered with Card Candi

This picture shows how I have overlapped the doily with the background paper

Finished off with a greeting and an acetate butterfly

Materials used

Spellbinders Rose Creator dies
Raspberry Road designer paper
Nitwits paper for the rose
Cotton Lace
Paper doily
Spellbinders scalloped circle die
Memento ink for the edges of the petals
Rose sticker from stash for the leaves and stem
Card candi and brad
Acetate and peel off butterfly
Peel off sentiment
Pinflair 3D gel
