Taking time to breath

...and to share one card I sneaked in on Sunday afternoon while I was waiting for all my team to complete their deliveries (door to door) of the census materials. On to tonight .......Census night ........ when hopefully everyone will either do theirs on-line or on paper and leave the latter out for my team to pick up over the next two weeks!

I am going to enter this in Craft Us Crazy #14 Anything Goes

The outside light has changed the red card to a pink tone - believe me, it is SU Cherry Cobbler!  The image is from WMS stamp set Roses in Bloom, stamped onto SU Soft Suede with Brilliance white ink.  The rose was stamped three times onto shiny white photographic paper, embossed with clear EP (with difficulty!) and then I used alcohol inks on them - Tim Holtz's Distress inks Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and Forest Moss and then topped with Barn Door.  I then sprayed it with Tatted Angles red and some gold mica.  I layered up after cutting out one whole and two part roses and added a jewel centre coloured with Copics to match.  The red spots actually match the red in the base card and you can see this in the photo below - also the shine of the mica. I used a Shapeabilities Tag and added white satin ribbon and the sentiment comes from the same rodent set, stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.
