Orange and Gold Roses


Although it is late Autumn here in the antipodes, I really enjoyed colouring up these roses from a Just Rite set of stamps sent to me in a RAK by Shelly

The image was coloured with prismacolor pencils, and the frame with gold pens, then the image panel was mounted on a floral spellbinders die cut.

I secured the ribbon on the card and tried to make a bow for the 'crossing', but it would not
 co-operate.  I then found this charm, and adhered it with a glue dot.  Problem, how to make it look tied on - I used some pearle thread, but it was fun and games to get it looking o.k.  Moral of the story, sort the charm and adhere before securing the ribbon!

The final detail was the sentiment, (a long time ago, unmarked purchase)  embossed on the patterned paper, which came from my stash - again I am uncertain of it's origin.

I am happy with this card.
I am linking it to the following challenges:

  6. fabulous Maxine. The flowers are simply beautiful.

  7. I should think you would be happy with it. This is a beautiful card. You colour so well with your pencils. I am never quite happy when I do it, so I go back to my copic markers again. Must try harder! It seems odd that you are approaching Autumn just as our summer finally kicks in.!
