Rose Trellis Birthday Blessings



I can't seem to stop thinking about springtime and the gardening season that comes with it. As I made this card, I was imagining the pink roses on a scrolly trellis. The Birthday Blessings sentiment is from an older cartridge, Beyond Birthdays.

This card took some time to make because of the roses. The smaller ones were especially fiddly to make. And then of course, in my usual style, I spent quite a bit of time in choosing which fence to use. I decided on the white picket fence because of its country charm. The black wrought iron one was just too bold and overpowering.

The following picture shows the sheen of the cardstock. The deeper rose petals are done in a pearlized CS. The light green background is also pearlized, though different. I cut the sentiment from plain white, then painted and shaded it with ProMarkers.

As usual, I prepared the inside verse on my computer. I punched the edge with a MS deep edge lattice punch.
