Birthday Roses (CC266)
Today's Color Challenge on SCS was to use some retiring colors: Ruby Red, Blush Blossom and Cameo Coral. We were to use white or ivory as our neutral, and the "dessert" was either cocoa or caramel, meaning to use Close To Cocoa or Creamy Caramel, but is was optional. I used both. The base card is Ruby Red with a layer of Very Vanilla that was embossed with the Elegant Bouquet Impressions Folder. The main image panel is Blush Blossom matted on Close To Cocoa which is scalloped. The roses are Ruby Red and Cameo Coral with Ruby Red sponging. The tiny embossed flowers were punched from Blush Blossom and sponged with Ruby Red. Pearls were added to the centers. The leaves are Creamy Caramel sponged with Close To Cocoa. I've had tons of requests for the instructions for making the roses. If you would like them, too, please give me your email address so I can send the file which is in Microsoft Word. Thanks for visiting my blog today!!
