Coral Rose Sketch

Another lovely sketch by Mischief Maker Edna Morrisedie for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog!  I can't wait to see what projects BLOOM from this one...


And my card...


My love affair with the color navy blue continues!  It took willpower, but I decided to pair it with a coral colored rose instead of a RED one :)  I bought the quatrefoil patterned paper by The Paper Studio a few months ago.  At the time, I purchased 12 sheets of it (and it's 12x12!) because I planned on using it for the project to share with my tablemates at the Buffalo swap.  I ended up switching my design, soooo you may be seeing quite a few cards with this paper in the upcoming months, hee!

Colored the rose from Roses in Bloom with Copic markers and then paper-pieced 3 layers back together with dimensionals.  The sentiment is also from the set.  Also used the Grand Labels 11 Nestabilities to make the "topper".

Your turn to play along! Upload your creation HERE by next Friday, June 22.  Be sure to include at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project to be eligible to be the randomly-selected player who will win a WMS stamp set of choice!

DON'T FORGET!!!  Sunday, June 17th is the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party!  Instead of a theme, we are using a gorgeous inspiration photo.  Find the photo and all of the other information about the party HERE!  You will have 24 hours to upload your creation to the Mr. Linky set on Claire's blog.  Special mentions and another random winner of a free set will be announced on her blog on June 20th!  See you there!!

Kelly your coloring on this rose is gorgeous! I feel like I could reach out and touch the velvety rose petals. I also like the navy quatrefoil patterned paper and look forward to what other creations you will come up with to use it up.

Kelly you have really hit your stride since hopping onboard the WMS DT!!! I know I do not get to comment often because I am typically surfing with one hand and doing something with the other. I love the colors you paired on this beauty and your coloring is beautiful!!!
