A card with rolled paper.

Paige, over at the CREATE blog set an interesting challenge this week... to used Rolled Paper.  Now for most of the week, I thought and thought... but in the end, I simply went with Rolled Roses.  I used a small and medium Die-Namics dies.

Friends Forever


I cut some gold printed vellum to make my rolled roses.  The little one was quite tricky to roll, but got there in the end.  My image is from a booklet of Lily of the Valley images I got in a magazine.  I coloured it with watercolour pencils and a blender pen.  I added a little distress ink around the edge.  The PP's are from a freebie set from NitWits.   Just layered them and the image.  Added some Hero Arts adhesive lace... but when I took the photo I realised it was not straight on the card.  :-(   The little sentiment comes from a  Sparkle Clear set by Hero Arts.

Still way behind with my CAS online class... and believe it or not... I still am only up to day 8 of Tim's Tags..... I WILL FINISH THEM.... some time before December 2012!!!!  Today I got the next 3 months images for Mygrafico design team.... so lots of playing ahead.  I get excited and want to make lots of cards and projects at once.... I have to pace myself!

Thanks for visiting today...
Dawn
