Single Rose RSVP

The challenge at Beccy’s Place this month is anything goes with one of Beccy’s images. I was very fortunate to win the Rose Bouquet Set last month and felt it would be particularly appropriate to use this set for my card this month.

My favourite image is the Single Rose, just sheer perfection and so very detailed. My favourite colour of rose is yellow but as I had just made a card recently with the same colours I went more towards the pink spectrum for a change.

I used Promarkers to colour my image and added darker colours to the centre of the rose and petal edges. I used a border due from Crafter’s Companion for the trim at the bottom and layered it up with 3d foam.

I used a sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches for the layout. The paper is a Pink Petticoat one from a magazine freebie. The ribbon is a scrap from DCWV and the sentiment is a rub on from Royal & Langnickel.

We have been invited to another wedding reception and I needed to do an RSVP for it so I felt this image would be perfect for it. I don’t do CAS very often as it is I really have to fight the urge not to fill the space up with an embellishment but at least the paper is pretty and not covered up with loads of added elements and of course the image is perfection and needs very little to complement it anyway J

Materials Used in this Project are as follows:-
Card size – 5” Square
Paper – Pink Petticoat magazine freebie
Sentiment – Rub on from Royal & Langnickel
Tools – Letraset Promarkers & Flexmarkers, Crafter’s Companion Grace Frame border die, 3d foam pads
Embellishments – DCWV Ribbon
Techniques – Diecutting

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-

Another beautiful card!! You did a great job coloring the rose and you are right, it doesn't need a lot of embellishment. I really like the punched border below the image. I hope you'll join us again soon at Word Art Wednesday.

The single rose carries so much meaning as does your favourite colour of yellow. I just finished a whole spiel about roses over on the Scribbles Challenge blog. You did a lovely job with yours.
