Summer Rose

Are you having the same muggy weather as us?  We had a terrific thunderstorm a couple of nights ago and it rumbled on for ages. I had such a headache that afternoon, so I should gave been warned there was thunder on the way.

Anyway, on to things crafty.  It wasn't until I'd finished this and taken the photos that I realised I'd gone and chosen the same colour palette that I've used a few times recently.  I hadn't realised before because this time I just picked out colours of Bazzill card to go with the rose I'd already coloured with artist's pastels, rather than the Versamagic Ink Set I used the other week.
The layout is the July sketch from The Sketch File, and the rose is one of the flowers I made to show the versatility of the newest flower die acquisition. 

Her is the sketch - I twiddled it around a bit for my card
The Sketch File, July 2017
 Here's the rose I'd already made using Cinch and Go Flowers Two  Shapeabilities Etched Dies (Spellbinders)
I coloured it using 3 shades of artists pastels and some bits of old baby wipe to get a pretty buttery yellow colour, then chose some Bazzill card scraps to build the LO

'Enjoy' (Creative Expressions)
Embossing Folder: Swiss Dots (Cuttlebug)
Top fold 15cm square card with a small strip cut off the side

That's it for this time, I hope you like it.
