a rose is a rose (distress inking)

I'm on a roll.  And it's all about a rose.  And a set of cards for my neighbor for her birthday.

I used sketch #13 from Retro Sketches for my first card.  Love this sketch and some great DT work with it too.  You should have a look.

And although I decided to make all the cards different, I opted to go with one image from my new The Craft's Meow, Beautiful Spring.  Let me tell you, I LOVE IT.  Here's #1.

Heat embossed the rose on Neenah CS.  Inked it up with Adirondack and Distress Inks - a la the rose "Gloria Dei".  Cut it out.  Stamped the leaf onto green scrap , cut out and toned it down by applying a bit of Distress Peeled Paint.  Cut a piece of white CS and rounded the top using partial die cutting with a circle die.  Punched a hole for the tag.  Dry embossed with woodgrain folder.  Added ribbon scrap.  Adhered a strip of digital PP to card base.  Stamped sentiment and adhered tag with dimensional adhesive.  Did I mention I love it?!?!

It's Anything Goes over at Simon Says Stamp.  I'm comin'.

Happy blooming roses to you.
