LOC Framed Rose

What better image to use for Valentines Day than a rose - we all love them don't we, whether on paper or IRL - roses are divine!!

The Cottage Rose cling art stamp by Layers of Color is a pleasure to colour and create with!  I stamped it onto white card stock and coloured it with SU Chalks. I have tried to keep the shades more muted for a softer look.

I then popped it onto a frame that I have recycled using a negative of the Spellbinders Labels Four and Cuttlebug Vintage Corners.  It was quite by accident that it formed this frame - but I was not going to pass it up!  LOL!  All Dies have been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur.  Pearls have been added to complete the frame - simple elegance was the way to go with this card!

This is for the following challenges:
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
Delightful Challenges - Distressed/Vintage
