Christmas Roses

Good Morning. And what a grand morning it is. We are finally getting some long overdue rain and along with that came a COOL breeze. A very nice break from the HOT MUGGY air we’ve had for months now.

Well, here is another card I made using the Christmas Rose Digi images from Fred She Said. I am having so much fun with this set. I just can’t stop playing with it.

This card was inspired by a Sketch from Doodle Palace. It just happens that this sketch is perfect for the image this way.

There are so many different ways of using these images and sentiments. I used the fancy tags nestabilities for the Merry Christmas through the middle. The Roses were printed four times and colored with Copic Markers. Two were then cut out and mounted on top with foam tape. Prisma glitter was added to the edges of the roses and stickles was added to the red berries around the images.

I cuttlebugged the bottom area of the red CS and sanded lightly to reveal the snowflakes.
The Cranberry Cardstock and the Holly DP is from Close to my Heart. It's from the new Mistletoe Paper Pack.

The DP was Hand Stitched on using matching Embroidery Floss.
