Roses and more roses

There's a new challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and it's ROSES.  You must have roses on your creation whether it be roses in the image, on the paper or added to your creation.  I used this beautiful image named Rose from The Paper Shelter. Although she has roses in her hair, I also found paper in my stash that had roses on it...and I couldn't resist adding more roses on the card. I made this card and stamped a Mother's Day sentiment inside it and gave it to my Mom. It's sitting in her curio cabinet with some of my other card creations I've given her.


 I colored my image with Copics and added just a touch of Hero Arts Iridescent glitter to the roses in her hair. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and the lace, pink jewels and pink pearls are from my stash. Do you like her tiny pearl earring?  My best friend, Lillian, sent me a pack of itsy bitsy pearls and they're just the perfect size to be an earring. Thanks, Lillian!


My flowers are from Wild Orchid and the leaves are a Martha Stewart punch. I added a touch of glue from my Zig Glue Pen to the edges of the flower petals and then sprinkled the Hero Arts Iridescent glitter on the wet glue. I'm trying to use up some of these glitters that I've collected since 1990 (are they antiques?) since I have an over-abundance of glitter! My bow is seam binding and I've attached a silver heart charm to the bow and then glued a rose in the center.


We're sponsored by The Paper Shelter who has donated this awesome prize:

The Design Team members have really outdone themselves with their projects made for this challenge of ROSES and I hope you'll go on over to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and take a look at them. I hope you'll join us this week with your creation with roses!

  4. Ah, this card is just screaming out "awesome", and "feminine" and "gorgeous" . . . once again, you just have to sit back and let your eyes scan over every square inch and you're sure to notice all the little nuances of detailing here. Like the little rose in the center of the beautiful bow, along with the charm . . . her little pearl earring . . . the bit of lace peeking out from behind . . . the magnificent array of flowers, beautifully arranged and perfection itself . . . the pearls . . . the gems . . . the glitz here and there. And her hair -- omg, I want to know what brand of hair products she uses to give it that luster -- this little miss will attract more than butterflies !! Awesome, magnificent creation, my BFF Gail . . . and you're very welcome for my teensy-weensy contribution to it - hahaha.
