Roses on Paper Design Team Challenge- Gate Card!
It's time for another Roses on Paper Design Team Challenge and what a beaut we have! The ever talented Jodi issued the challenge to do a gate card and what fun this was! Summer carries the Wisteria paper from BasicGrey and I knew exactly which papers and what stamp I wanted to do for this challenge. Lilacs are one of my favorite flowers and I've tired to grow a lilac bush but have failed terribly at it. So I get my lilacs where I can even if it's from a cutie like Tilda!
Picking Lilacs is from Magnolias and you can pick them up from Summer at Roses on Paper. I adore these sweeties and I colored her with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I used a bit of Glossy Accents on her dress and ribbons in her hair and added a bit of Flower Soft to accent the lilacs. She's cut out with nestabilities and I used my textured cuttlebug folder on the front to give it a bit of dimension. I love the Bling and Wisteria Brads and my new flourish punch. I think they added just the right touch.
I left the Notecard shape on the inside blank so this beauty could be used for any occasion and layered the inside with another piece from the Wisteria collection. I just love how she came out!
So make sure you stop over at our challenge blog and see all the gorgeous creations that my designing sisters have created for you. I just know you'll be blown away! Hope everyone has a great week and don't forget to stop and smell the lilacs!
