Rose Trio

I have Blog Candy in the post above.
Ends Friday 19th. 

Now this card that  I'm about to show you today 
is a bit of an odd ball because as I was making it
I kept thinking what if I do this, what if  I just add
and what if I tweak it a bit here and there,
so much so that the card is nothing like I had 
planned out in my head.
I am pleased to say though that I like it very much.

Time for another challenge over at 
Crafting From The Heart
The sponsor for this week

I have chosen to work with a digi called
'Rose Trio'

So I started with the premise that I would 
colour the image with my Papermania
water colour pencils which I did.
Then I had the notion to colour up an identical image
and place one on top of another. 
Whilst colouring up the second image I sort of thought
what if I put one behind a sheet of vellum to mute it down a bit.
It was only at this point I thought I had better go and sort through
my pink stash of papers for a paper to go with the image that 
I had already coloured twice!!
Second Phew as I found this freebie paper
by Sally Moret 2012 and cardstock in pink and green 
that matched perfectly. 
Next up I decided to cut a frame using 
Sizzix  Scallop rectangle die 657905 
which was actually  a tad smaller than my image.? 
Not to worry I thought.
 Next bright idea was to layer the design paper
 on a green base then one of the images,
the vellum ,the die cut scallop and put the second image
over the top scrunching the flowers and leaves slightly to just
 overhang the frame work.
By this time I'm on a roll so added stickles  in Diamond and Holly
 to the top roses and leaves.
The rose charm happened to be on my desk so had to get used as well.
I die  cut a small tag from the pink card and vellum  and used
a silver sticker for the sentiment at which point 
I thought enough is enough.!!!!!

You can just see in this close up the first rose  image
 covered with vellum which is behind the scalloped frame.

How many Phew for this card, but the final look is just amazing!!! The vellum has been the most helpful idea, I think, and the bunch of roses has a fantastic look with the "ghost" roses behind the scallop frame! Love all the sparkling on the edge and the gorgous little charm on the tag. This card is very romantic and full of delightful details!

I adore how you experimented with this card and the Roses. Love how the finished Roses turned out. Embracing Creative Bliss...

Your card is so pretty. The roses are wonderful and the paper is a perfect match. The vellum layer and extension over the frame adds a lovely depth.
It's fun to be fluid with card designs. I surprise myself at how different they turn out from the original plan sometimes xx
