Rosy Birthday


I'm back again with another card for the Little Tangles Birthday Bash challenge, Let's Celebrate.



I've used the colour scheme from this week's ColourQ challenge:


And I've taken inspiration from this week's Muse card by Laurie Willison:


After I'd stuck the roses onto the card I decided they needed pearls in the centres.  The pearls were a magazine freebie and they came attached to the acetate in a spiral.  Took the photo and was about to write the post when I moved things around on my work area (read dining table) and the rest of the pearl spiral ended up on the card, and I decided that it looked better with than without.  So I painstakingly added each pearl to the card in a spiral fashion.  Maybe sometimes less isn't enough - what do you think?

I also got to play with my new CAS-ual Fri-Dies oval tags which I won in the CAS-ual Fridays August release blog hop :)))

Stamp: Neat & Tangled Everyday Circles
Dies: Little Claire - Steve's Swirly Rose, CAS-ual Fri-Dies Oval Tags, Sizzlits Flower Centre and Leaf (just used the leaf)
