A warm welcome to my visitors again.
I love this image of a Cottage Rose (a retired Layers of Color stamp) and took great delight in using it for this card.
Before I start, I would like to say that the camera has told lies - this card is actually a light purple, and the dark layer is a deep purple - you can just see the purple on the edge of the ribbon.
The image was coloured using chalks, and partially cut out - I did not use the full image as it is much larger than I wanted to use.
The purple layer is mulberry paper with a gold thread through it - I chose to cut it, not tear it this time.
The pink rhinestones are grouped as they are as I was following a sketch, but did not get the card completed in time - again! The sheer purple ribbon is absolutely stunning on this card, but I suspect you will have to take my word on that!
The butterflies were snaffled off/up-cycled from a card I had been given - I think they are sissix ones. The rhinestones I added.
A quick photo of the inside - I don't often decorate the inside of my cards. Ironically the purple ink has shown true to colour here!
