Coming up roses

Hello, crafting friends!
Welcome to another fun challenge at Addicted to CAS! Helen has decided on the code word for the next fortnight and you are going to love it:

We all love to think pink don’t we!  I thought of deep-hearted, sweet-scented pink roses for my note card.


This is a very simple one layer card, using a rose stencil from Uniko. It’s a really big stencil (you can see how it fills a whole card in THIS card) but I’ve taped it quite a way off my card base here to make the roses smaller. I stenciled twice, in opposite corners, blending pink inks into it each time. When the stencil was removed I added a tiny bit of detail with a pink coloured pencil.

I love a touch of gold with pink, so I finished my card with this beautiful sentiment from C&9th’s Beautiful Branches, stamped with versamark ink and heat embossed in gold.

Okay, so now it’s your turn! Do hop over to the Addicted to CAS challenge site to check out the beautiful pink samples my teamies have made to inspire you. You’ll find the Linky Tool at the bottom of the post and you can use it to share your own creation with us when you’re ready. Don’t forget we are a clean and simple challenge and we love to see clear white space on your cards!
I’m linking this card up with Happy Little Stampers Stencil challenge where Anything Stenciled Goes; also Try it on Tuesday where the theme is Summer Blooms.
I was wandering around the garden centre the other day when I saw a rose called Fair Eva. What an excellent addition to my tiny flower garden I thought, adding it to my wish list; it would be a wonderful tribute to my beloved golden retriever! When I got home I looked it yup and discovered it comes in many versions, from a miniature rose to a large rambling variety. I suppose I should get the rambling one so that it can take over the entire garden and REALLY remind me of my girl!

Sending hugs,
