CHALLENGE #158 PAPER ROSES

Hi! Everyone. Sorry it's been so long since I have posted but I have been extremely busy at work this week. So glad the weekend is here so I can craft.  Behind on a lot of projects. Such as this one, the challenge for this week at FCCB.

I used my new Elegant Edges cartridge and George and Basic Shapes.  The paper collection I used is DCWV, Chateau Lavender. I cut the oblong frame at 4" and the shadow frame at 5".  The collage image is from Geko Galz "Nature's Child". I love the images that they have.  The sentiment banner is stamped in Wisteria chalk by Colorbox. I also used this for inking the edges of the frame. The stamp I used is MCT "Bloom Where You Are Planted" set. 
For the flower I cut 1 lavender and 1 cream card stock flowers at 2" from George and Basic Shapes. Then I alternated the colors and cut 1 each at 1 1/2"and 1".  I inked the edges and wet the cardstock so I could shape the petals.  I inserted a brad in the middle to keep the petals together and let it dry.  It's attached to the card with a glue dot. 
The ribbon and lace are scraps from my stash. The stitching is purple glitter pen. I think this card is very Spring with the garden scene and flowers.

Join our Challenge this week and use your Cricut to cut out the flowers.  Can't wait to see what everyone created for this challenge at FCCB.

Bye, Bye, for Now
