"Don't Forget to Smell the Roses"!!

Made this birthday card today the stamp I have had
for ages, it really is so detailed. I stamped with my black staz on
ink pad three times, I then watercoloured with my W & N pallet
and cut out. This gorgeous flock paper is from Laura Ashley and is
really like the flock wallpaper of old!! can anyone remember that?
One you want to stroke!!!!
I have cut and peeled back to expose so that the Roses are peeping
through! As you can see I have stamped and coloured the envelope

The With Love sentiment is stamped and the other has been
made up on the computer. I have distressed all the papers
with an old emery board, which I think has done a mighty
fine job!

This is the preperation and stamping in process..

The Colour Create Challenge this week is Duck Egg Blue and Rose
so I think this fits the bill over there with the Rose being taken

Fantastic card Susan. Great use of the colours and I love how you've peeled the paper back to insert your image. My several attempts at this all ended in the bin (lol) you've inspired me to have another try!!
Thanks for sharing this with us at CC.
