Wild Roses

Hi there 🙂 When I saw this image from QKR Stampede (no link available, as the company has been sold), it brought back so many summer memories. I can remember walking down the back roads by our farm, and seeing all these wild rose bushes. I’d always be sure to carefully pick a bunch for my mom, hoping that I beat my dad to it!! I colored this image with my Copics, then cut it out with a pretty die. I messed around with a few ideas before deciding to go the way I did. The leaves in the embossing folder really reminded me of the rose leaves. A piece of pink ribbon, a die cut sentiment, and some matting were all that was needed to bring this card together. I was so impressed that the ribbon and the paper for the die cut and matting not only perfectly matched up with the pink in the image, but with each other as well!!

I’d like to enter this in the following:

  1. A very pretty card – who doesn’t love roses?? I like the embossing folder you used – it really does accent the roses well. Beautiful design….thanks so much for sharing this with us at PIP Challenges!!

  2. What a pretty card Susan. The rose image is beautiful and your colouring is perfect. I love the embossing folder and pretty colour scheme. Thanks for sharing with us at Passion for Markers this week. Hugs, Denise x

  3. Simply elegant card, Susan. The leaf embossed background is the perfect accompaniment to those pretty roses and the CAS design lets the image be the centre of attention…
