Orange Roses

HOLA! Ok...that as far as I go with my Cinco De Mayo Well today I wanted to share a pretty card I made using the Lg. Roses image from QKR Stampede. This stamp actually measures 4 1/4 x 4 1/ yes...large is the right word for this. There is also a smaller version of the same image that is 2 1/2 x 2 1/2. Sometime I enjoy a large image...because one stamp makes your whole card for you. Well here is what I did with the image. So I went with a bit of a "non-traditional" rose color. For some reason I loved the way the orange roses looked. I colored them with 3 different shades of orange makers, and 2 shades of green for the leaves. Then I fussy cut only around the outside, and layered onto the PP from Imaginisce. I used the Happy Anniversary image from the QKR Stampede set called Happy Birthday. This set actually has 4 sentiments in 1 set! Not a bad deal! Last, I added a little bit of orange stickles to the darker parts of the flowers.
A very simple card...yet sooo pretty. Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Thursday.

Jess, I love that image, I have it too! Great job, maybe orange roses aren't common, but who cares, they turned out very pretty.
