Roses


Our challenge this fortnight at Ooh La La Creations is "Clean and Simple".  This style of card has become very popular and in my opinion, very difficult to do.  I always want to add "something more". I really like CAS though, I need to try harder!  For this card I used a beautiful image of roses from the Carnival of Colour cd and mounted it onto white pearlescent card which I embossed with roses.  I added a swirl (couldn't resist) and ribbon.   Why not pop over to our blog and see the lovely DT cards, all so clean and simple.

I am entering the following challenges:

"Clean and Simple" at Daring Cardmakers
"Anything Goes" at Through the Purple Haze
"Anything Goes" at Crafting from the Heart
"Clean and Simple" at Fairy Tale

  13. This is gorgeous Michelle, you do CAS very well. Like you I always what to add something more, then it ends up not being CAS. The roses are beautiful and the added ribbon finishes it off perfectly.
