Warmest Thanks

Last card for today! All this week, I've been enjoying reading about  the Card Design Handbook at Moxie Fab World. And of course, there are challenges going on there to test just how well you paid attention to the rules of design.  For this card, I wanted to try out the principles of the Focal Point and  wanted to focus on the vellum rose that I made using the new Cheery Lynn Designs Build a Flower 2.  I colored the plain vellum using Faber Castell Pitt Big Brush Artist pens and Art Grip Aquarelle pencils.  This let me create a very realistic striated rose petal.

The background was stamped using Verve's Artful Elegance stamp set (as well as the sentiment). The tag was cut using Verve's Tiny Sweet Scallop Die Set.  The white satin pleated ribbon is from May Arts as well as the very cool paper cord.
