Wild Roses- Meet -Christmas Roses

Morning everyone and hope you are all well and keeping warm/cool depending where you are!We have a new ATG/Use Flowers challenge at Create and Inspire sponsored by Sheepski Designs and I used the beautiful image "Wild Roses" coloured with promarkers-stamped sentiment and cardstock from stash,The stitched square dies are from The Works.

Now this is actually the first CAS card I have made that I am actually happy with-the background is stamped with a 5 piece stamp set from Altenew Christmas Roses stamps using distress inks and coloured the image to co-ordinate-happy with this one lol.

Donna Ellis said...

Such a beautiful combination of roses, Carol! The coloring is just perfect. "Back in the day" I used to make all my background papers and enjoyed it very much. Thanks for reminding me that sometimes the special handmade touch is far more artsy than just using preprinted papers, pretty though they may be. It's a beautiful creation! hugs, de
