Today's card is inspired by last Monday's Mojo Monday sketch. I wanted to play with one of my newest embossing folders and use my Rose Creations die for a frilly center rose, and this sketch was perfect for that. Here's how it turned out...
I turned the sketch on its side for my card...
Instead of gluing the lace strip down on the ends, I adhered it only in the center (beneath the flowers) and left the ends free for a looser, shabbier look. The leaf flourishes and paper roses hold it down except for the very ends...
I wanted a golden yellow rose for the center, but with all the colors of cardstock in my stash, not a one was the right color of yellow gold. So I die cut a cream cardstock rose, and used yellow gold acrylic paint, dry-brushed around the edges, to get the two-toned color I was looking for. I think it worked pretty well!
