Roses for You

Another wonky picture! I've made today's card with my new LOTV Emma with pot plant stamp and coloured her with Copics, although the blue dots on her hat aren't showing up. It took me an age to find paper and put the card together but hopefully in the end it turned out ok. The pretty lace I won some time back on the Lili of the Valley challenge blog, so it seemed appropriate to use it to create a card for their current Celebrations theme. I've added a little round LOTV text stamped in an old Adirondack die ink colour called Wild Plum to pick up the plum pink Copic colours I used. The background paper is from the Pachela Stuidios digi Country House paper pack in Rose available at Cuddly Buddly, matted with orchid pink cardstock. To embellish I've created a floral spray from paper roses and Marianne diecut leaves, and coloured a length of white organza ribbon with RV63 before tying a double bow.

Copic colours I used:
skin - E000, 00, 21
dress - BG70 kissed with 72
hat and bag - E50, 81
pinks - RV00, 63, 66
green leaves - G40, 12
hair, pot and puppy - YR21, 24
shadow with warm greys

I'm also entering my card in the Creative Inspirations and Moving Along With The Times blog challenges, both with a Summer theme and what could be more summery than a big bunch of roses in June (except it's now July).

  6. this is extra special Annie, so pretty

  7. Your floral spray with the roses & pearls is lovely & the way that bow picks up on the one in the image so effective. The die-cut leaves are so pretty, especially teamed with the delicateness of the lace you used. Even the little scallops on her hadnbag pick up on the scalloping on the lace.
