SSIC LOC Rose Resist

I love Sunday's and one of the reasons is that it is time for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge this week is brought to us by MariLynn - who has chosen:

 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind
2 Timothy 1:7

MariLynn has challenged is to try something that you might have been AFRAID to try before now, examples... a new technique, a new color combo, a new style (CAS if you are a Layered stamper, or reversed) so a one layer card is where this challenge has taken me - not my thing usually...

It has definitely been made easier by using the Layers of Color Vintage Roses art stamp set and the Crayon Resist technique - I have had a lot of fun with this technique and love the way it looks with soft colours - Rangers Scattered Straw and Tattered Rose.

The divine roses are some I acquired at the Craft and Quilt Fair - it comes in rows of six - I trimmed one row off and adhered it to the card, adding pearls as a final touch.

This card is for the following challenges:
365 Cards - Vintage plus Yellow
Challenge Up Your Life - No patterned paper
Designed 2 Delight -  Anything Goes
C.R.A.F.T. - Resist Technique
Craft Us Crazy - Anything goes in August
