Rose Garden - PPA294

Today is Pals Paper Arts challenge, PPA294. This week is a sketch challenge, created by featured designer, Dawn Tidd.

I turned the layout 90°, and created a Rose focal point.

I created a sponged background with several ink pad colors, die-cut it with the small rose from the Rose Garden Thinlits. A small rose was die-cut from Blackberry Bliss cardstock. The sponged background, die-cut pieces, were inserted in the Blackberry Bliss die-cut Rose. Love this look!
A background of Whisper White cardstock was embossed with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder, to set off the Blackberry Bliss color. A pretty, Whisper White Seam Binding Ribbon Bow at the top. A white heat embossed sentiment, a few Rhinestones and Daffodil Delight DSP, finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by, please leave me a comment! I love to hear from you!
