The rose garden

  I have five birthdays in my family within the next week, so here is the first of those cards. This stamp is from Lili of the Valley and I have again used Promarkers to colour it. I edged it with tattered rose distress ink and then mounted it onto red mirri card, using Spellbinders to cut the shapes. The patterned papers (with more roses!) are from Wild Rose Studio's Annabelle's range. The vertical strip was trimmed using Spellbinders edgeabilties dies. Ribbon was wrapped round this before attaching to the card and three tiny gems were glued at the top and bottom of the strip. The circular centre piece was mounted onto light and then dark pink centura pearl. The flowers were made from  centura pearl which had been coloured with red Promarker.  A red bow and die cut leaves finished the embellishment.

 I would like to enter the card into the following challenges:
 LOTV - pretty in pink
 ABC - roses are red
Lili's Little Fairies - happy birthday
Whoopsi Daisy - use your markers
Stamping Sensations - sketch/summer colours
