Golden Roses

     New challenge this morning at QKR Stampede and our theme is "A Touch of Gold."  I'm pretty sure I used more than just a touch but it was so easy to get carried away!   The image is "Digi 15411 Rose Border" and it's one of my favorite flower images in my rather huge collection of flower digis.


     I used my ProMarkers to color the roses and deliberately left the rest of the image black and white.  I die cut it and the sparkly, gold frame around it (Cheery Lynn "Enchanted Forest.")  I layered those onto a piece of glittered CS in a deeper gold and trimmed it to fit the size of the frame.

     I chose some plain gold CS and wrapped the white lace around it before mounting it onto my card front.  I hand cut the sentiment and matted it with dark brown CS.  My final touch was the double white bow.

What a beautiful image and your touch of gold is the perfect amount. It is amazing how much that little bit stands out against the black and white. Very elegant. Have a wonderful upcoming weekend.

It's sooooo pretty....I shy away from flowers for fear I can't color them in all their beauty. I love how you used the gold. Been feeling poorly but thinking of the challenge.
