Embellish Rosettes Color Challenge


Between my card and the background real flowers...this picture definitely shouts spring at you!  I'm sneaking it before the Embellish Challenge runs out!  For this card, I stamped the Hero Arts background in Versafine and then embossed it with clear embossing powder.   For the rosette portion of the challenge, I used a Gluber to make the flower.  I've had this turquoise ribbon for years.  The leaves use a touch of burlap. To finish it off I added some pattern papers and a quick thank you.    A simple design, but you know me...I like simple :)


I also wanted to pass on information about a new Etsy shop.  Alicia's good friend, just opened a shop, selling adorable, bur clothes. If you have a new little one or are looking for a gift for a friend's little one, they look beyond adorable.  Happy shopping!  Here's a very sweet picture of Alicia's daughter, Emelia, modeling with one!

lol, everytime I see Gluber, I think Guber!! LOL That rosette is fabulous and against that background? WOW! Aren't burlap leaves fun? Now I look around and ask, what else can I die cut with! I might try a frilly flower! Although it would take up a lot of my last burlap piece.

The flower is gorgeous and the colour so striking. The background says vintage to me so the card, to me, mixes contemporary and old-just gorgeous x
