This is a rather CAS card, but I liked the outcome
I started with the snippet of paper that I mounted the rose on, and decided that it looked best over the pale green card.
The Rose from Stamp Simply Thinking of You Rose stamp and steel die set was stamped using markers on the stamp, and then cut using the matching steel die
The sentiment (from Montarga Stamps, a New Zealand firm) was embossed in silver.
I ran all the edges of the green panels over a Memento Cottage Ivy ink pad
The final detail were some random clear rhinestones on the feature panel, and a strip of them across the bottom of the card
I inside was kept simple with a wee piece of washi to match
