Summer flowers :)

Hello :) Today I like to show you my challengecard this week. I used a big, single rose as my main focus. It was white, but I wanted some colors on it so I sprayed it with pink Glimmermist. And then I brushed it with some white acrylic paint to mute down the pink a little.

Papers are Maja Design and text from Kort og Godt. I`ve used dies from Spellbinders, Cheery Lynn(doily) and Memorybox. And of course I have used lots of gorgeous embellishments from Wild Orchid Crafts: 45mm Open RosesSilk RibbonDecorative Metal CornersPaper DoiliesFlat Backed PearlsFlat Back Pearl String and Wooden Dove Embellishments. Both the metalcorners and the doves are painted with white acrylic paint.

Thank you for stopping by, hugs elsi ♥♥
