Some old roses

Hi my friends,

Today, the ways to use it challenge on SCS was using die cuts.  Well, I have many dies to choose from, so I decided to play along.  I first die cut a piece of white cardstock with the mini baroque movers & shapers die from Tim Holtz.  Then I pulled out an old, much loved SU stamp set called Roses in Winter.  I stamped the rose in pink passion and rich razzleberry and also used the rock 'n roll technique.  The leaves were stamped with pear pizzazz and always artichoke.  I sponged a very narrow edging of rich razzleberry around the edge and on each layer of the card.

The next layer was die cut in certainly celery with frame back ornate #3 die from Sizzix and then embossed with retro diamonds embossing folder (Quickuts).   For some color in the background, I stamped lattice backgrounder (Cornish Heritage Farms) in certainly celery and added some mini photo corner punches.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
