Beautiful Vintage Roses

I LOVE Vintage Roses by Altenew.
It's such a lovely set to use, producing beautiful, realistic flowers.

I was asked to make a card for a 60th birthday...

This card took a while to do as I don't have the matching dies yet, so had to cut the flowers and leaves by hand, then I sponged the edges of each piece, before deciding on my placement.

I used Memento Dew Drop inks.
Flowers - dandelion, canteloupe, tangelo & potters clay. Leaves - new sprout, pistachio & bamboo leaves.
Papers - LOTV (Nitwit) 'Country Meadow'.
Diecut - trellis die by Clearly Besotted Stamps, & Die-namics 'By The Number' dies.
Punch - eyelet border by Stampin Up.
Sentiment - 'Bring on the cake' stamp set by Stampin Up (stamped onto vellum and heat embossed with gold EP).
Gold glitter washi tape, flat back pearls, and clear wink of stella on roses.

I'm entering this card at:
Cardz 4 Galz - woman or women
QKR Stampede - add some sparkle
Ribbon Girl - Spring/Easter or anything goes
Whimsy Challenges - anything goes
Stamping Sensations - Flower Power

Hope you all have a great weekend xx
