~ Inspiration from Roses ~ Two Card Sets
My big brother handed me a camera outfit -- one of those big, black ones with a long lens and I'm learning to compose and shoot. Here are my firsts taken over the weekend.
Once a month at church, we have a fellowship dinner, and my Mom arranges the beautiful flowers for all the dinner tables... here is one of them.
The roses this time round were simply beautiful! large buds that blossomed even with the "freezing" rain falling outside. The colors were so very fresh.
soft, velvet petals, and clouds of babies' breath.
And a little artistic shot with my sister's headband over the rose.
Well, I wanted to show you these photos because later on I became inspired by the beautiful colors and the roses themselves, to create a few cards. Here they are.
These photos didn't turn out so well... but anyway, the card was made with patterned paper, tea-dyed trim and a mini tag, Love Lives Here stamps, little pearls and trinkets and buttons. And scrunchy ribbon.
this one, with dawn's set: dressform. and stitched felt leaves, scrunchy ribbons and trinkets and more tea-dyed trim. I so love that sentiment! so perfect for every occasion. For moms, sisters, friends ... and even men I'm sure.
And then, the roses inspired me to try to create my own, as betsy showed how here... so very cute.
The beautiful, victorian lace border die is from PTI, and I added some lace trim, little trinket pins and felt leaves.
Such a thoughtful and kind sentiment; a new one I love. From the Masculine Motifs stamp set.
I hope you will be inspired by something around you today... A vase of flowers is just about my favorite right now, and I will always, always love roses. Don't you?
