Delicate Cottage Rose

This is the beautiful inspiration for this week's Shabby Tea Room challenge #23.   I would love to have a room that looked like this!


Here is my take on it:


The rose is a digital image from Bird's Cards.  I printed it out on Hero Arts carnation layering paper and  green cardstock, then added shading with my colored pencils and mineral spirits.  The background paper is almost the last of the sheet, and therefore unknown.  The brighter pink strip is a grosgrain ribbon, source also unknown.  The sentiment is from a clear set by Impression Obsession called Spring.  The little pearl hearts are from Hero.

Very pretty card! I love that large rose stamp. Your coloring job is wonderful and I adore the patterned paper, wide ribbon, and that lacy doily. Thanks for playing along with us at TSTR.
