Coral and Red Roses

I created this card for two different challenges: Make My Monday #105 which has a color option this week and also for Try Stampin' on Tuesday which is a sketch challenge.

I wanted to try using my new blending brushes on regular white cardstock after die cutting the layers for these flowers. It made it so easy to blend
colors...especially when adding 3 different colors to the leaves! 

It's been awhile since I used the Fantasy Floral Die set from Altenew, but that gorgeous group of florals in the photograph led me straight to these great dies which are easy to assemble! 

The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions Simple Strips Background set.  I accented the black panel with some olive green twine.

It's a perfect day here in VA...sunny but not hot and humid! Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting!              ~Wanda

Wow, great combination on the two challenges. I love the color-combo and your dies. I only have layered stamps by Altenew, but these dies are also very nice. Thanks for joining TSOT!
