ABC Challenge - R is for ..........

...............Roses!


This week at the ABC challenge we would like to see "Roses" on your creations.

I have to apologize for the photo. My favourite camera died on Sunday :( and I have to use my very old digital camera which is no where near as good but at least it's still working lol! I'm looking around for a new camera but seeing as my other one only lasted just over a year (and cost a fortune), I'm very skeptical. Any advice would be appreciated.

For my card I first of all went on a very long search through my craft stash for a piece of decoupage paper that I knew was hiding somewhere. I love this tiny decoupaged rose and bought loads of this sheet a few years ago.
The image has been mounted onto a piece of white gloss card which has been embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder. The corner flourish is an architectural accent Sizzlit die.
I've also used my Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch and some paper from 7 Gypsies.

I hope you can join in at the ABC challenge this week. I look forward to seeing your creations.

This is a very elegant card. The decoupage is really striking! I had the same camera frustrations a few months ago and have bought a Panasonic DMC-FS7 which I'm really pleased with. It has 10 mega pixels which is as good as an SLR and a Leica lense (can't get better than that in my view) I do wedding photography so am quite fussy about cameras. I love mine....hope that helps
