Winter Roses

Hi Everyone, One of the design team cards for the Our Creative Corner challenge just blew me away this week... Dana's card, to be exact. The challenge is to use blue and cream and add metal and vellum. I love vellum, and I am now wondering why it doesn't make it to my cards more often. I definitely wanted to give some vellum rosettes a try.

I was trying to go for a white-on-white look, so I didn't want to use too much Night of Navy cardstock, just a sprig or two. I used the Table Setting die to create the rosettes. While my tombo glue was still tacky, I added silver micro beads for the metal part. I also sponged the rosettes and glued a couple of Night of Navy circles to the bottom.

This card will also fit in nicely to the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge this week.

Stamps: Warmest Regards; Paper: Bashful Blue, Night of Navy, Whisper White; Ink: Night of Navy; Accessories: Sponge, Silver micro beads, White satin ribbon, Circle punches, Finial Press embossing folder, Table Setting die, Big Shot, Tombo multipurpose adhesive, Dimensionals.

Sorry my card is very CASE-y, but I just had to play!! Thanks for stopping by!
