Rustic Rose

Hello Readers,

Busy day today but I wanted to carve out some time to post this card. So, for today I will be playing along with Seize the Birthday, Double D Challenges and The Card Concept. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

A lovely card using the Rose Wonder stamp set by Stampin' Up!.
The center of the flower was done using a combination darker pink alcohol markers
and then blending it in with a lighter color.

The rose was stamped on white lustre cardstock then heat embossed. And because alcohol markers are translucent the shimmer shines right through the color. I also used metallic copper embossing powder for the background and silver dots with silver lustre. Together they prove to look so pretty and elegant.

I dry embossed the copper background by applying VersaMark Ink directly on the embossing folder. This allows the debossed part of the card ready for copper embossing powder. I then took my black inkpad directly onto the card that hit all the embossed areas.
Below/Left: The copper background is so pretty against the silver dots and the magnificent rose. Bottom/Right: The sentiment was chosen for its message but also for its font. I think it fits this design so well. The black it seems sets off brings out all the colors on the card. So pretty.

Challenges Entered:
Double D Challenges: Anniversary/Blogaversary/Birthday
The Card Concept: #64- Pretty Things
Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes

Now that my daughter is reading and roaming the internet (safely) she now frequents my blog and sees what I am writing to all of you. No problem I say... Nothing to hide... It is just me babbling about my life events. So this to my little voyeur who checks up on me every now and then... Know that I love you and now it is time to get off the computer and tell me how wonderful I am... heheee. 

Well, that is it for me today. I hope you enjoyed your visit and do hope you drop by again. So, until next time please take care and happy stamping.

All the best,
