Golden Roses

Hello to y'all !!
Today's card is a card for my mum's friends who are celebrating their Golden Wedding anniversary in March, (we can only hope our husbands will put up with our crafty mess for that long !!!!) I just had to have this "Rose is a rose" set just for this card !! (and a few others) Have got lots of ideas for this set so keep 'em peeled !!

I used pearlescent card with a computer generated sentiment, the lovely "Rose is a Rose" stamp set with Summer sun ink from the earth elements colour family. I stamped off on scrap paper for the first layer to make it pale and then used it 'neat' for the second step so you get the contrast, all done with the help of the trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig. Old olive for the leaves and stems using the same technique. Also added a bit of fine glitter which you can't see very well on the photo as it was very grey and even snowing for a bit here this morning- roll on the summer I say !! White organza ribbon and Rainbow drops from stash.
Hope you like it and I will be back later with a couple of projects for our "Jems challenge" !!
