Inkspirations Challenge #90 - Birthday Rose

It's time for another challenge from the Team at Inkspirations & we have these yummy colours for you to play with:-


I've gone for a bit of a vintage look & used lots of dry embossing:-



I have inked my Finial Press embossing folder with white craft ink to get more definition on the lower panel.  I've added a rose (the tutorial by Joanne Leddy is here), which  sprayed with frost white "shimmer mist".  It has a lovely, delicate sparkle.

To see what the rest of the Team came up with for these colours, make sure you visit the links below:-

So elegant! I love that crumpled paper and how you used this week's colours :)

This is stunning. I love the white on the bottom embossing...it gives it a vintage look. I love the embossing on the top panel...it "frames" it all so well. And the flower is sweet and gorgeous all at once!

Love the flower! I've made a few of these myself and they always look wonderful on a card :) Lovely job with this week's colours.

That flower is amazing, love the texture. The embossed base with the white ink looks fab, softens it beautifully. Great use of the lovely colours.
