Keeping it Simple


I used a GinaK Stately Flowers #6 rose image for my card today. I colored it with Copics, and die-cut the panel with Lil Inkers stitched rectangles, matting with a narrow black mat. The dsp is from a black & white paper pad I snagged for a bargain price at Tuesday Morning because the cover was missing, so I'm sorry I have no idea who the manufacturer might be. I love the delicate old-fashioned lacy look of it and I thought the rose looked perfect with it. I'll add the sentiment whenever I use this card. It can be a great Mother's day card, or used for many different occasions as well.

I'm entering this into the Cards in Envy - "Keep it Simple" challenge.

Wishing you a wonderful day whatever you happen to be doing! Thanks for taking time to stop by!

It's a beautiful image of a rose, and perfectly shaded & highlighted. I think it looks very pretty with the stitched rectangle mag over the delicate b&w lace too. Most elegant. TFS & Hugs
