Rose Garden


This is something totally out of my comfort zone lol... I don't do vintage and the thought of distressing brings me out in a cold sweat.. I have printed the digi stamp 'Rose Garden'  onto craft card and coloured her in with Prisma pencils giving a much softer tone. The papers are just beautiful by Pachela Studio called 'Country House Papers' available at Cuddly Buddly, I have used the Cranberry set.
The flowers where made with a Marianne Creatables Floral 2 die.

I hope you are all looking forward to the Easter break? I have actually got three days off so am really looking forward to a little bit of family time, my Son is visiting with his girlfriend and her little boy hopefully the weather will be good and we can have a BBQ.  

I am entering my card in to the challenge over on the Sir Stampalot Challenge  which is 'Ladies and Fashion', well she looks a real lady, not sure her dress is fashionable lol.. but suppose it was in her day :)
