Reminder Post for The Flower Challenge #42 Anything Goes

Okay time to share this card I made for the reminder post for The Flower Challenge

I have used Rachel Vass Designs Trio of Roses and I have gone with a different look here.

As I finished colouring them, Copics, I decided I wanted to try dots falling off the flowers.
Elysha got it straight away she said it was like they were falling into the sunlight. Its different,
not sure if its too much but for me I liked it. Then how to show this off to its best.

I decided on a yellow card base and cut the window with a stitched arch die. I then added the rose picture inside the card by working out from the outside where best to position it.

I then decided the image needed something to frame it as I hadnt thought the card idea out properly when colouring the roses. I used this wonderful frame die from Altenew and the highly glittered paper.

As you can see here it looks like a framed picture. I think it works
out okay, its different but I do like it. I have shown a couple of friends and
they have all said yes they like it and I can give it to them so I feel
comfortable with it.
I finished off the card with a gold foil die cut 'Celebrate' with the black outline.
I hope you all enjoyed your visit so now its time to go check out all the wonderful inspiration
from the Design Team on The Flower Challenge Blog. and if you havent seen it yet, dont forget to the main post and check out Joey S card, it is absolutely stunning. He is on Instagram and his cards are all so inspirational.

Remember there is a prize again this month and being Anything Goes (as long as the flowers are the main theme on the card). Ten days and counting......

Happy crafting

Beautiful card, Aileen. Your coloring on the roses is beautiful and I love the dots you added. Sometimes some of our best makes happen when we wing it.
