Christmas roses

A simple card this week, this lovely image from Chocolate Baroque doesn't need anything else IMHO - and lack of time has nothing to do with it!  The image was stamped in black versafine and clear embossed before colouring  - the foliage with pencils, and the flowers with H2Os . I cut the image out and mounted it  with foam pads onto a piece of white card that had gone through a cuttlebug folder, and rounded the edges. The two smaller mats were a bit of paper from a bagful of bits I was given, torn and embossed round the edges with a mix of EPs ( black twinkle and golden ocean) , the second was a bit of core-denations  card that went through the same cuttlebug folder before being sanded back and the edges distressed. The main backing sheet was most of my last sheet of a greeny gold paper bought from a show ages ago - am hoping I can find some more this year!
This card is for 3 challenges - am not usually that lucky.....

  7. I agree Veronica, nothing else needed with this timeless image. You've coloured it beautifully (H20s are not my strong point, lol)and must have used up some patience with the cutting out or did you find it therapeutic? Whatever, it's really lovely and I like all the different textures you have going on too.

  9. I love everything about this card. The stamp is one of my favorites and it would not be Christmas if I didn't make a couple of cards at least with this one.

  15. I love how your dry embossing picks up on the veining of the ivy leaves. The colouring of all the leaves is quite stunning with so many greens & I really like the way you've made both the ivy & the holly variegated. I like the way that the Golden Ocean mixture picks out the bluish tinges in your flowers too.
