Good Morning to you all on this Sunny Gorgeous Frigid day. The groundhog said we'd have an early Spring. I'm just wondering how early. It can't come soon enough for me. We had snow Tuesday and Freezing rain and Ice yesterday. It's times like this when I wished I didn't have a really LONG driveway!!!
I always love playing along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge every Tuesday. And when I saw this week's sketch, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.
I LOVE purple and I have this gorgoeus paper left over from some bulk papers from Close to my Heart from several years ago and knew it was perfect to go with these fabulous pre-colored roses from Fred She Said. These roses are from the set called Hearts and Roses. You can get them as Digi's or as pre-colored images. The roses come in 7 different colors and I'm determined to keep making cards with them until I use every color. Only four more to go!!!
The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.
The green cardstock was sanded in a cross hatch ddesign to make it look like linen.
I've had these Nesties for ages and finally had the perfect sketch and images to use them. The pearls going down the left side were colored a light lavender with a copic marker because they were placed on white paper. All the other pearls were left white.
