For Your Inspiration #3



It's time for another photo reveal on the For Your Inspiration blog, so get those creative juices flowing and join in this fun challenge! Now, I'll have to admit this one had me stumped for awhile. I kept looking at the picture and then I had a light bulb moment...the pale yellow buildings are nestled in a grove of greenery, so I went with using a group of rolled roses nestled in green leaves. The BG papers are from the Stella & Rose Hazel pad by My Mind's Eye - some of my fave new DP! The roses were die cut from Lemon Tart CS (PTI) using 3 different rolled roses dies by
MFT. A row of bling by Recollections was added along the top (thanks to Michaels for adding a huge new display of bling...bling...and more bling)! The sentiment is from Verve's Just For You set. The leaves were punched using Martha Stewart's frond punch. The layout is this Fall To Layout Challenge turned upside down.

Wanda, this is stunning! Your yellow roses look so real. Yellow is my favorite color of roses. I may just have to see how you make these roses look so real. Mine do not turn out so beautiful. I see that row of bling across the top. I must check out Mike's to see what our store has! Beautiful card!
