Queen for A Day - DIC138
Hello all!! WOW has this past week just flown by me!!! Here we are at another UDI Inspiration Thursday. This week Maria has provided us with a beautiful deep blue rose. At first I thought, "What am I going to do with this??"
After I thought about it for a moment I remember the fabulous Springtime Vintage dsp and especially the sheet with the roses on it!!! Since the rose is blue, I cut the dsp to show as many of the blue roses as possible. Layered this on a card base of Not Quite Navy. A leftover strip of the striped dsp was next and I topped that with Crumb Cake seam binding that I scrunched.
The interesting part of this card, I think, is the rose embellishment. I just knew that I had to use one of the new rose adornments, available in the Occasions Mini Catalog. But it needed to be built up just a tad and so I used 1 1 1/4" circle of NON, 3 1" circles of Baja Breeze that were crumpled up and then layered onto each other. And just to set the rose apart slightly from the Baja Breeze card stock, I tore a piece of NON and have it peeking out. This was then put on top of a banner strip cut from the Petal Cone die.
The layout is from the clean & simple blog, FTL130. I also used a leftover piece of the scallop 1/2 circle from the Petal Cone die in Very Vanilla. The sentiment was stamped in NON using the "You're a Gem" set.
