Framed Rose Anniversary

Hi there.  I made this card for an anniversary a few weeks ago and never got round to showing it here.    I used a Chocolate Baroque stamp called Rose Stem Script and also a set of dies from Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson Elegant Lace Edger Configuration Dies.

I began by stamping the rose on to a snippet of white card using Versamark Ink and embossed using WOW White Embossing Powder.  I watercoloured it using a water brush and using Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, Walnut Stain and Mowed Lawn, and Adirondack Ink in Bottle.  I cut the Lace Edger dies, two of each using  some snippets of white card, and glued them to form a frame around the rose.  I finished the topper by cutting round the edge of the frame and added a silver sentiment and then mounted it on to a white square card and as it overlapped at the top and bottom I cut it down to fit.

Thank you for visiting here today.
