This rose (I'm not counting anymore) is going over to the Play Date Cafe challenge #134:
And to the Young Crafter's Unite Flower challenge #10:
The PDC colors are so fun and delicate. As are the inspiration photos. So sketchy. Cool.
I actually made two cards with the colors. First off is the rose card, this time for my aunt's 70th bday. She may be 70 but she doesn't seem it at all. Went lighter on the coloring of the rose - yellow and pink this time. Added that die cut strip of the perfect DCWV red, some gray spatters and some matting with PP too. And a sweet sentiment on a tag attached with a teensy tiny brad.
Then, using up scraps, I tried my hand at the "little collage and lotsa white space" that's happening out in cardmaking blogland. Need more practice but I'm OK with this first attempt.
