Yellow Roses- Happy Birthday
Here is my DT card for the Challenge.
The roses were made from normal weight pale yellow paper using various punches of petal shapes. To create the 'tattered' effect I snipped the tip of each petal with a decorative scissors which had a rough or uneven cutting edge. This is a tip I found on You Tube and this is a great idea if, like me, you don't own a Tattered Florals die.
The tips of the roses where then rubbed with some Stäz-On Blazing Red ink to contrast the yellow and the petals were then layered to form the rose. The centres were made using Glossy Accents, seed beads and a couple of dark brown gems. The leaves were hand cut and each leaf was scored to create the spine and veins. I arranged the roses onto a piece of card that had been decorated with a piece of white doilly and brown and gold organza ribbon.
I then matted a piece of lilac cardstock with a green gingham ribbon band onto a standard white card base and placed the roses at the base of the gingham ribbon. A silver peel-off Happy Birthday completes the card.
