Hello my crafting friends.

The main focal point of my card is a stamp that I've used by ALLNIGHTMEDIA which I believe is an image by Anna Griffin. I stamped the image with Versa Mark and then embossed it with a fine black embossing powder. The Rose itself was coloured with Spectrum Noir markers and I've coloured the leaves by starting with a pale water coloured Impress Olive Green and then I've gone over it with Marvy LePlume markers to vary; and to give a greater depth of colour. I then dusted around the edge of the image before mounting it on various Spellbinder dies, alternating from red to white to give the card contrast.  I finished by creating a bouquet of Roses.  I created the largest Rose and the leaves myself and the other Roses we ready made. The birthday greeting is by Stampin Up.

I look after my Granddaughter through the week and we spend a lot of time at our local park which has quite a large Rose garden.  Here's a photograph of a 'Peace Rose' that I took last week, it's definitely one of my favourites. I took the photograph as I hope to replicate the colours with my Spellbinder Rose Creations in the near future.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I hope to be back with you soon with some exciting news as our Grandson is due to be born this week :)

Here's my attempt at a 'Peace Rose.'  I'm happy with the Rose but I need to work on the colour.  I used Lemon and Pink but it's turned out more peachy!  :)
