Raspberry Roses

Hi All, I made this card with 3 challenges in mind.  City Crafter is looking to see Roses,
 Craft Hoarders Anonymous is looking for us to up-cycle something,
 and I used the sketch inspiration from sketch #26 at  Seize the Sketch.  
For the paper I used Gecko Galz Floral Symphony papers, printed the sentiment from Word.  The lace was an old faded pink from my stash that I dragged through some Vivid raspberry ink to get the right shade.  The up-cycled item is the Fleur de Lis, I bought a while back from Salvation Army thrift store for, it was a paint-able wallpaper border in its last life, I was sure I could make it into a card somehow.  I fussy cut this piece from the border as it was quite large, I love the texture on it.  I tried spraying it with Tattered Angels Glimmer mist but it did not grab the color that well so I then used some of the Vivid raspberry ink on it too..
Well, that's it for today, thanks for stopping by,  ~Diane

  1. STUNNING Diane. The pinks are just so vibrant. Just adore the upcycle of the wall paper flourish. Reminds one of an English country garden in early spring.
