A Rose for You

Morning Peeps.  Hope this finds you cool enough for the hot summer days we have been having.  It's the first of the month and time for another patterned paper challenge at CraftyHazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.  It was so nice seeing all the entries for last month.  It couldn't be an easier challenge.  Always Anything Goes and the only requirement is to use patterned paper, a little or a lot.

Here is my card for this month.  I used a acrylic stamp rather than a digi this time.  It's "Rose" from Technique Tuesday.  I colored it with Copics.  The patterned paper is from Carta Bella Yesterday 6x6 pad.  The roses on the paper worked out well for the rose image.  The black cardstock is from Recollection as is the bling strip.  Try as I might, I couldn't get the rose image to photograph in the pink color rather than the lavender that it insisted on.  I tried different camera settings, lighting, etc. and it still shows lavender.  It is really a old rose color,  And of course, the bling has a lot of reflection.  Someday . . .
