Dog Roses

Today I've made a card for these challenges, Make My Monday where they have these colours for us

and Simply Stampin' where there is this sketch

and CAS-ual Fridays where they want some Bling

 This is my interpretation 

The ribbon is wrapped around the green card, and the foliage is stamped on some white card that is up on 3D pads. The Dog roses ( I think that's what they are?? ) were stamped on white card and washed over with an Aqua painter to spread the inks colour, before being laid in place and the stamens being highlighted with Cosmic Shimmers.

Recipe : 
Card = Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, and CB from MS
Stamps = Everything Eleanor and Verve
Inks = Pear Pizzazz and Pixie Pink
Extras = 3D pads, Pixie Pink ribbon, and Cosmic Shimmers Twinkles

I've been dieing to use these stamps since they arrived last week, but after straining my right arm and back while doing the gardening on Monday, I've had a RA flare up and have not been able to brush my hair let alone do any crafting!!.

Anyhow, I hope you all have a good weekend, whatever you are doing to help "Lizzie" celebrate her Diamond Jubilee, and I'll be back soon ( I hope??)

Thanks for dropping by
