Peach Roses on Graphic 45 Paper

I was playing around with more of my Open Roses and remembered I had some Graphic 45 Le Romantique paper that would be perfect for peach colored roses.

Oddly enough I did not have a Distress Ink that matched the coral shade in the Graphic 45 paper. I ended up using Victorian Velvet and Rusty Hinge. It is a very interesting combination.

I also used my Diamond Edged Decoration border and square mat along with some K and Co paper for the bottom of the card. The square mat is raised slightly with foam.

Of course, with all the flowers on the front, the card does get quite bulky.

But then, I forget all about that when I look at those roses...

...they are so pretty that nothing else matters, LOL

I have a ton of other projects planned. I just have to work around Life. :)

This is an amazing card - simply gorgeous with your hand crafted roses!! I never really thought about it, but there is no coral color distress ink. The great thing about distress ink is that they layer so beautifully to get the color I'm looking for. ~ Blessings, Tracey
