Roses and Lavender

Just playing today; this one uses dies and lots of texture!

supplies: cream, black, Simon's Green Apple, Green Leaf, Sunshine, a pale gold and a medium lavender card stock, Tim Holtz Roses texture fade and Wildflower die, Altenew Layered Rose dies, sentiment from Simon's Beautiful Flowers

It's no secret if you visit here often that my favorite rose is a yellow one.  So I played a little with the yellow card stock in my stash until I found 2 colors that I liked together.  The roses and leaves are 3 layers, a solid back, a detail layer, and a framing one.  I thought adding something spikey would change things from the other cards I've done with this set of dies.

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Such a beautiful card Lin, love all that glorious texture. The recipient will love it, Cathy x

  2. Such beautiful roses, Lin, and I love the addition of the lavender! Perfect on the embossed rose background and I love how you cut it!!

  3. Oh Lin what a beauty - love those roses and the fabulous embossed background is perfect behind it. The lavender spikes are the perfect contrast in colour and shape.

  4. Very pretty. Love the yellow roses Lin. We have a beautiful yellow rose in our garden.

  5. A beautiful card and the spikey flowers are the perfect touch, especially the color.

  6. I haven’t visited for a bit; I just got back from CA, and am catching up on my visits. This is spectacular Lin. I love the cutout embossed piece. A lot of work here but wow such a fabulous card.

  7. This is absolutely gorgeous and would fit right in to my Rose Garden blog challenge :)
