Rose - Color Dare #275

Close to My Heart/Color Dare Challenge #275 ... Love the color of Bashful and it's easy to select a beautiful rose as my focal point using the Fern color for the leaves as my banners in the Tuesday Morning Sketch #435.  The rose was cut using the front and back of the Bashful for contrast and White Daisy cardstock for layering, attached to panel of Heather design paper with thin foam sheet and glitter applied to rose.  Leaves were cut with a design paper from Paper Fundamentals "Fern", layered with White Daisy cardstock, adhered under the rose and glitter applied.  For embellishment added three Gold Glitter Gems to finish it off.  Did not use a sentiment on the front so that it can be used as an all occasion card to be determined in the future for either a birthday, thank you or sympathy card.  

Please stop by and view the DT's inspiration for both of these challenges...and the Color Dare Challenge will be open for (2) weeks, and don't forget to also view the previous challenge which is open until next week.

  1. Such a pretty card, Sue! I love how you put all the textures together with the pattern papers. Beautiful card!

  2. This sure is beautiful... the rose is so delicate and certainly shows the difference between the front and back sides of the new double sided cardstock! Love the Bashful patterned background paper you chose as well and the layering is perfect - just enough. Love it.

  3. So lovely! I love your beautiful rose with the two tones of bashful.
