The Card Concept #4 - Use a Floral Theme

IMG_3877


It is time for another new challenge at The Card Concept.
This week we have another beautiful inspiration for you to try.




I was inspired by the beautiful roses in the inspiration photo and by the soft peach colour.  To keep my card CAS I created a one layer card using my favourite roses from Clearly Besotted and then I added some co-ordinating sequins to give the card a finished look without bulk.  Sequins are such an easy embellishment to add interest to your CAS cards. I am submitting this to this week's Simon Says Wednesday challenge to make a card for a wedding or anniversary and the current CAS(E) this Sketch #64.

Really lovely. I had to laugh when I read Marybeth's comment...I thought the exact same thing -- I need that stamp right now too!! The rose is lovely, but the sequins really set the rose off perfectly. Love this. Bev
