Blush Rose

Hello and welcome! 

It's time for a new card share as a new theme starts today at Allsorts challenge. It's another 2 week theme to cover parts of summer and this time around our theme is "Roses or Anything Goes". Hope you'll join us for your chance to win one of our two prizes (a cute stamp from Oakwood or a choice of 3 digis from Ruth Hamilton Designs).

For my card this week I went with the option of Roses and I selected a gorgeous image from Ruth Hamilton Designs - Roses

I colored the image using copic markers. I decided on Blush for the rose so I chose colors in shades of blush along with a few greens for the leaves. The image has been printed twice, fussy cut once and then I fussy cut the large rose from the second image to pop it up with foam tape for some dimension.

The background was done with blue brusho powder from this set for a quick and simple watercolor look. Then I stamped the script (old Stampin Up background stamp) using gray Distress ink.

Patterned paper strip is from my box of scraps and the sentiment is from Penny Black's set Blooming Sentiments. Paper piercing finishes off this CAS- ish card. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope to see you at the challenge blog too :)
