Ring A Ring a roses

I was looking in my drawer of left over embossed paper looking for a scrap of 
Swiss Dots but this scrap of SW Bed of Roses presented itself.
Liking what I did with a previous card HERE
thought I would try colouring it again but this time
I chose to use 2 colours.
The roses were coloured with a Versa cube lilac
and the leaves with a Memento dew drop in New sprout.
The Memento having a pointed end makes it a breeze to get between the flowers.

There was just enough of the pale mauve card to mat the embossing
and cut out the 3 little flowers.
I just have a sliver of the pale mauve to take with me when I shop again
The flourish I found in my box of greenery had a piece missing.
not to worry I hid that behind a flower.
The silver stickers/peeloffs look as if I was worse for wear when
I stuck them on but dare I try to straighten them?

Am sharing this with 

Thanks for dropping in

  1. What a beautiful card Margaret! Such a lovely shade of mauve and so pretty. Glad I'm not the only one who trots around with slivers of card tucked in her purse for matching purposes :)

    And yes, that was Parsnip's mucky face peeping at you - if there's mess to be found he's right in there!

  3. You've got a deft hand at using those cubes to do the coloring on the raised surfaces. It's SO delicate and pretty. The embossing looks lovely with the solid color too. Congratulations on your Mom's Day win as well. TFS & Hugs.
