Until now, I hadn't been game enough to attempt a rose with Spellbinders Rose Creations Die. I purchased it purely on a whim that maybe, one day, I could make something half as fabulous as Madame Donna Salazar purports that one can with her die. Yes, I bought into the dream. Needless to say... there it sat. Yesterday, I guess, I found my nerve. Embarrassingly enough, it wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be, even though I doubt I would win a handmade paper rose beauty pagent, but I'd reckon it could possibly snaffle twentieth runner up on a good day. I am pretty chuffed with it actually and most importantly had a hoot of a time making it.
The overall card was born from the inspiration stimuli of both The Shabby Tea Room and Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge sketch called a circlular shaped card to duty with the additional elements as drawn and The Shabby Tea Room asked kindly for the inclusion of chevrons and the colors: Blue, Brown, Cream, Green, and Orange (that's a fair swag of colors, hey?). I thought, why not just create a fun and crafty card salad as my offering into the mix? Not sure what actually prompted me to add all these fantastic bits and bobs in the one card, but I don't half mind the results. And yes, that is an invisible button I used on the card, in case you were wondering. *wink* Oopsy!
Thanks for stopping by for a gander. I do appreciate your visits so. Have a brilliant and inspired day!
