Mid Challenge Reminder for TRCC - Regal Rainbow

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

It's the middle of the month, so I'm back with a reminder of my card for The Rainbow Card Challenge.  Please note though that this month's challenge closes on the 15TH!  We are a monochromatic challenge and while we ask you to keep your creations as such, we appreciate the need for neutral colors and or a hint of others.  However, this month our theme is REGAL RAINBOW, and this month we're asking you to use as many colors as possible.  Here's the inspiration image...


And here's a reminder of my card, the details of which can be found on my original post...



I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

Framed Roses

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Way back in September, I promised you I'd show you another design demonstrating the versatility of Linda's Roses & Lace plate.  I don't break promises, so here it is...


Can you see what's different, apart from the frame?  If you're thinking one of the roses is missing from the top left, you'd be right!  I omitted it so the design fitted the space.  Once the roses were in place, I added the frame behind, in much the same way as you'd mask of a stamped design before adding background detail.  Then, finally added the sentiment

Card: Unbranded white and lilac, and Clarity's lilac parchment
Groovi Plates: Princess Charlotte Lace Corner Duet, Linda's Roses & Lace, Nested Scallop Squares, and Occasions Border
Tools and embellishments: Pergamano embossing, piercing, and cutting tools, Clarity brads, and rhinestones from my stash

Challenges...

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

If you enter both months, please add DT to both submissions so we can see your versatility! We are so excited to see what you create for us!

Our theme this month is Regal Rainbow although your card does NOT have to include ALL the colors of the rainbow, if you don't want to... we just ask that for this month only that you make it as colorful as possible!


And here's my card...


Card: Unbranded white, SU's Dapper Denim and various snippets, and Clarity blue and clear parchment
