Hope Everything's Rosy Card

Happy Tuesday! This week at Tuesday Throwdown we want you to use your favorite embellishment, mine is twine. Although lately I'm using a lot of sequins for added sparkle. Our sponsor this week is Power Poppy and they have some gorgeous floral images. It was a lot of fun and a little challenging coloring the pretty rose images for my cards. I liked the first card so much that I made a second using the same papers and colors. We would love for you to join us this week and use your favorite embellishment on your papercraft project. Click here for the design team inspiration and all the challenge details. You have until mid-day on Monday, July 25th to link your creation. Hope to see you in the gallery!

Both cards were made using the same supplies. After making the first card I realized the leftover patterned paper pieces were still large enough to make another card, so that's what I did. The paper is from the Madeline 6 x 6 paper stack by Prima Marketing. It's been in my stash for several years and I love how the rose paper looks with the Arranging Roses image. The cardstock colors include: Pool Party, Rose Red, Blushing Bride and Early Espresso by Stampin' Up!. I changed the accent colors on the second card to mix things up a bit. The sentiment on the first card and the image from the second card are both from the Everything's Rosy digital stamp set. To make the sentiment stand out I added an embossed piece of Blushing Bride cardstock behind it and added some twine. Both cards have twine and three sequins, however in the photo they are harder to see on the first card. Well, everything else is pretty self explanatory and I don't want to ramble on with too many details. Thanks for stopping by and come back again soon!

The first card is entered into the following challenges:


  1. These are so pretty, Andrea! Love your colour combo and gorgeous papers! Beautiful colouring too!

  2. Both cards are beautiful - such a nice job coloring and matching up the background papers!

  3. Two cards created and both are lovely. I really appreciate how you use the perfect papers to enhance your graphic. The twine is a nice addition also.

  4. Your cards are gorgeous! The beautiful patterned paper matches so well. Love your color choices.

  5. Gorgeous cards Andrea. Thanks for sharing with us at Artistic Inspirations and we hope to see you again soon. Hugs, Gale DT
