A Rose by Any Other Name...

     I was looking at the inspiration photo for the February challenge over at MHK Designs and went immediately to my collection of images from MHK.  I found these stunning roses and decided they would be perfect if I colored them in light to deep pinks.


I based my card design on this sketch from Viva la Verve,
although I broadened the design to fit my card shape.


     I colored the image with ProMarkers, then cut both it and the frame with Sizzix dies.  Both the polka dot dp and the background dp were from my stash of scrap papers.  Since I was using wide sheer ribbon, I decided to layer it on top of the image instead of under it.  I found the layered rose in my stash and added it to the bottom corner for a bit of dimension and a tiny pop of green from the leaves.

     We're getting close to the weekend again and I have big crafting plans, including some sewing and some machine embroidery.  I have a new data card with butterflies.  Maybe I'll have time for another embroidered applique card.  We'll see.

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
