A Rose Especially for You
I want to give my friend Sarah the credit for the inspiration behind this card. If it wasn't for her coming up with the idea to do personal challenges and then sending a card using this awesome sketch I don't think this card ever would have been created. So thanks Sarah for the wonderful inspiration.
The start of this card all came from a layout on a birthday card and the second inspiration was for the flower challenge from Sarah. I started with the black layer that I embossed with the finial press folder then I chose this gorgeous flocked paper from DCWV Le Creme stack. It was so hard to cut this paper up. One of the first sets I got from SU was Flower Garden so it was nice breaking it out again and inking it up. I colored the rose with markers and when I put the panel on the card the white background was too stark against the aged dp. So I used some Ranger ink Antique Linen and rubbed it on with a cotton ball.
Have you noticed I kind of have a black and white theme going this month, maybe I'll just carry it through.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there. I hope you're being spoiled today.
