Another paper rose



I can see where these might get addicting :). I'm entering this into two challenges.  I used the sketch from CPS 166 and the colors from Paper Play Challenges brown and ???? challenge, choosing to use brown and blue. 

Supplies: Cuttlebug embossing folder Victoria and Core'dinations Chocolate Box Cool Mint for the flower, kraft cardstock, Hero Arts CG119 Flourish Background, embossed in VersaMark ink and a la mode Sky Blue embossing powder, HeroArts CL272 All Occasion Messages and Palette Burnt Umber ink, lace, blue pearls

  4. Oh, this flower is so blue-tiful!! I love the detail of the embossing on it, Lin! I actually hope it does get addicting for you, because then we'll be treated to more of them! I also love the light blue flourish, stamped on the brown! Pretty combination! :)
