An Impossible Rose


In one of my classes this year I taught the Impossible Card fold, which I might add is deceptively simple to make.

The patterned paper I used is from a Stampin' Up Christmas pad... 

The rose from Darkroom Door (Full Bloom Vol 1) was stamped with Memento Lady Bug and Cottage Ivy inks.

The sentiment is from the same set. 

The final touches were the gold glitter card behind the panels and some champagne flat back pearls.

I am linking this to:

It's a very interesting old Maxine and that is a really beautiful Rose image, plus the gold highlights give a feel of luxuary.

It's a lovely rose image, so beautifully colored. I've watched some videos on this impossible (called easy!) card, and it doesn't look 'easy' to me! Good job on this one, and I love the color choices. The gold glitz makes a nice eye popping trim too! TFS & Hugs

This is wonderful, Maxine! Thank you for joining us at Word Art Wednesday. I would like to share with you God's Word in John 8:12 which says, "When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” God's Word is timely and timeless. Have a blessed weekend!
