Yellow Roses



It seems so funny to be showing roses in December, but this card is to enter the Flourishes Floral Finesse challenge. I have so many favorite flowers: lilacs, lilies of the valley, forget-me-nots, daisies. But yellow roses have a special place in my heart; they always remind me of my Grandfather's Peace Roses, and they were in my bridal bouquet.

This card is much simpler than my last entry. I simply stamped Hero's Garden Roses on glossy photo paper, watercolored them with markers, framed with lavendar card stock and again with a cuttlebug-embossed Textile pattern on yellow cardstock, then mounted the whole thing on a white notecard.

  4. Lin, love to see flowers all year round!! Especially during the busy holiday season, it's definitely nice to mix it up a bit and not see all xmas cards sometimes, I love the way you stamp on photo paper, I remember it well from the card you sent me, beautiful technique!
