Double D - Rose Garden

Dear Ones~
It's time for another challenge over at the Double D Challenge Blog. Our challenge this time is to use roses - handmade, stamped, die cut or purchased. Just look at this beautiful Mood Board for our inspiration:


Here's my card:
I decided to do yellow roses for a change. I mostly do pink or red, so I thought I would change it up a bit. I love that embossing folder, it's really beautiful in real life. The roses are done with the Altenew stamp set called Vintage Roses. There are 4 stamps to the image. The trick is to pick the ink colors for the best effect. Sometimes it takes me several tries before I get just the right combination.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD  Lemon Drop and White Card Stock
Tim Holtz Botanical Embossing Folder
Altenew Vintage Roses  Stamp Set
GKD Beautiful Day Stamp for Greeting
Altenew Honey Drizzle, Fresh Lemon, and Evergreen Inks
SU Mint Macaron, Wild Wasabi and Crushed Curry Inks
GKD Warm Cocoa Ink for Greeting
SU Smooth Sailing Die for Greeting
Stickles for Flower Centers
If you head on over to the  Double D Challenge Blog and play along, you would win this beautiful die set. And don't forget to check out all the beautiful cards the other designers have created.

So that's it for me, thanks for stopping by. I adore your comments, they always make me smile. And don't forget to stop over at Double D, there is always so much inspiration there.
