Hello fellow crafters. For those of you in the Northern Hemisphere, I hope you are
enjoying what appears to be wonderful summer weather. However, for those of us
'down under' we are experiencing unusually cold weather, and in most parts of
Australia, we are in desperate need of rain. We are just a few weeks away from
spring, and already we look as if it is at the end of a very dry summer.
Enough of my 'whinging'...here is a very spring-like rose for you.
This card is for a lady who will be celebrating her 70th birthday very soon, but as
she doesn't know I have a blog it is safe to show you now.
I love making my parchment roses...no two ever turn out the same, although by using the
same combination of inks if I make a batch, they will have 'tonal' co-ordination. For
this card, I just used one large rose. The various foliage die-cuts were
sponged with 'Sage' green ink.
As usual, I have made the inside of the card to match the design on the front.
