The Craft's Meow June Release Preview Day 1: Beautiful Rose

The Craft's Meow

Here we are at day 1 of The Craft's Meow June release previews!  Today's stamp set is called Beautiful Roses, and it's designed by Nina B.  There are 3 wonderful images (all with roses), and 3 sentiments, too; so appropriate for this month of roses!  

For my first card I chose this Rose spray and colored it like my favorite Peace rose.  It starts out a lovely pale yellow, and gets pink edges as it opens.  I remember this rose in my Grandfather's garden next door.

I carried through the pink and yellow theme throughout my card, popping my 2 sprays above a tiny pink gingham edged with adhesive paper lace, and then added a yellow grosgrain bow and one of the sentiments.

For my next card I went about as far away in style as I could get.......I chose the circle motif from the set and then based my card on circles:

TCM Beautiful Rose, June

I used a sketch that I had pinned on my Pinterest boards, and papers from Basic Grey and Studio Calico, along with a wood veneer arrow.
