A Rose for You

Greetings and please feel most welcome - I love having you visit!!

In this post I am showcasing and other beautiful release from McMahon Vintage Digitals - simply called a Rose for You.

I chose this time to trim the image to an oval shape and then coloured it with chalks.

After colouring it was mounted on a scalloped oval. The background paper is one from a 'scrap pack' of papers I was given, and not only are the 'stars' in silver glitter, but there is a faint glitter through the whole paper, which I echoed by using Stickles on the scallops.

The flowers are two white Prima flowers coloured with chalks and stuck together before being finished with an adhesive pink half pearl.

This final feature was the ribbon and bow - the bow was tied separately and is held with a glue dot.

Here is the full image

Do please visit the other members of the design Team (listed on my right sidebar) to see the other beautiful creations from the new releases.

May your day be blessed.
