Another Twilight, Another Rose

This card is for:-

1. Incy Wincy Designs - challenge # 15 - Favourite Embellishments

2. Papertake weekly - Spots and Stripes

My favourite embellishments at the moment are my handmade roses, I love making them and just started experimenting with patterned papers although some patterns don't work. So this fits in for Incy Wincy Designs.

Papertake weekly want to see spots and stripes and this card has both.

Now this card is for an order, which i'm getting quite a few since I made my eldest son one for his Birthday last Saturday. The request for this card wasn't the easiest to fulfill, they asked for a card for a fifteen year old girl whos likes are Twilight, shoes, red and black. OMG where do I start I thought to myself, so I started to build the card as I did with Scott's, but changing the papers for girly ones then I had to fit a shoe in. The shoe is cut using a template then using a quickie glue pen I added swirls then glittered them with black fine glitter. Then went over the whole shoe with 3D gloss. I made my usual hand made rose using patterened paper this time then adding stickles for a bit of sparkle.

I'm not the only one addicted to these roses, my eldest son has been making them all day. With a bit of help from my 3 year old who's just getting over a bout of croup again.

Sorry for the long post, hope I didn't bore you too much Lol!

Happy crafting
