Hello there

Hello sweet bloggers,

Summer is here and schools are closed so it is out with routine and in with lazy mornings and such. 

Here is my card to show you today made with an image that I painted with my fingers a while ago while I was doing art with Aleeza. I cut the image out and stuck it on the leaves which have been punched on hand made paper from India. I have used a thick coat of glossy accents on the rose as there were tell tale glue stains on it. I know this rustic card did not need the addition of gloss however I had little choice to cover up my faux pas.

I will enter this in the following challenges: - anything goes with a twist - only use two colours - anything goes with rose and or pearls

Happy crafting,

I really love this card Monica. I didn't think I would be able to comment. If I come to your blog and try to comment on each post it won't let me but if I visit each post through my newsfeed I can comment that way. Weird. The rose is just beautiful.
