Tuscan Rose Design



I've been on a roll with cards lately and decided to play some more with my Tuscan Rose goodies! I really love these flourishes and had this brainstorm to emboss them clear and brayer over it. My first attempt I chose some hideous green and YUCK, it went right into the garbage...bye bye glossy paper scrap! I tried again with the Regal Rose from SU! I liked it much better! Then I discovered that the butterflies, also from Tuscan Rose, matched perfectly! I wanted it to have that shabby feel so I found some really old paper....probably from the 90's if you can believe it...by Tracy Porter! OK maybe I'm exaggerating a little, but it is pretty old paper that I've had laying around awhile! It matched! I cut strips and inked the edges with Chocolate Brown. I used my Cuttlebug ribbon slide die cut and slid the Tracy Porter paper through it. I had this round sentiment by I don't know who.....Added some ribbon and this card was finished! I was pleased with how it came out....and my husband was glad I didn't use black...he hates when I use black on my cards!




DON'T FORGET WHEN I REACH 5,000 I WILL OFFER SOME NEW BLOG CANDY!!!!! Keep checking in!
