I used the colours in our challenge graphic - I took the photo at a tulip farm in Holland, Michigan in May 2013 - for my card. I based the layout on a recent sketch from My Favourite Things Wednesday Sketch Club - MFTWSC#201. I used the large crackle background over the entire card base in pale peach. I cut green and peach mats using a die, stamping a pattern on the green and adding a white panel with verse to the peach panel. The rose, rose bud and leaf were stamped on white card, coloured with Copic markers and assembled to make one focal image. I added sparkle to the rose and rose bud with a clear Wink of Stella brush. I adhered the finished roses with dimensional gel. On the inside I cut a mat layer of green card and on the white panel added another rosebud, leaving a large blank area for my message. Also below is a close up of the rose showing the sparkle.
