The Rose …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I am sharing a special card that I created because of the passing of my Aunt. I wanted something simple yet beautiful, and I found that in the “Timeless Elegance” Designer Series Paper. It is so pretty and reminds me of old photographs.

I remembered a technique where they colored on Black & White photos, so I used the Pink Pirouette marker to color only one of the roses. My way of saying she has now entered a most beautiful place, and will be greeted by all our loved ones who journeyed there before her.

I used the shading on the paper to make my pink a little deeper, just color over that area several times until you get the desired shade.

The base of my card is Basic Gray and then the Pink Pirouette to pull out the color of the rose. I also layered a pop of Basic Black to really draw the eye to the card.

My greeting (sending sympathy and prayers…) comes from the “Petite Pairs” stamp set and has a sweet sentiment for the inside (to heal your heart).

I carried the Pink Pirouette to the inside of the card and then used Very Vanilla, it coordinates with the “Timeless Elegance” designer series paper.

You could color all the flowers in and stamp a Happy Birthday greeting on it.  I think this paper is so pretty and very, very versatile!

I have included a list of ingredients at the bottom so you can view the items separately or go to my on-line store.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.

Take good care ~
