Vintage Roses

Today I am sharing a card I created some time ago, for Mother's Day (obviously).  I have been busy creating but am unable to show you just yet as they are for some Guest Designers spots I am excited to be doing - one in August and the other September.

I have created my own Designer Paper using the retired Vintage Roses set by Laura Kirste Campbell - I love the romantic 'Shabby' feel of these roses.  I have stamped onto an exsisting piece of pale patterned paper and lightly coloured the images with SU Chalks/Pastels


The addition of Want2Scrap Bling was perfect - who doesn't love roses and pearls - and these pearls are divine - Swirls Finesse - love them!


The sentiment is also a retired Set - Sent with Love by Laura Kirste Campbell.

One easy card as you can see, but fun to make - just ask the ladies from my Card Design Classes - they did a wonderful job!

This card is for the following challenges:
LEJ Designs  - Anything Goes
Make it Monday - always Anything Goes 
Simon Says Stamp and Show... - Anything Goes  
 Whoopsi Daisy Use Up Your Stash (paper)
Let`s Ink It UpAll Girls
