Wonderous Rose Inlay

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!

Today's card was inspired by the new challenge over at MHK Designs, where this is the cue...

And here's my card...

It is the first inlaid card I've tried and while time consuming, even to just do the leaves, I hope you'll agree the effect was worth it?

Card: Smoky Slate (base and outline), Whisper White, Shimmery White (die cut base) and Mossy Meadow
Ink: Memento Black
Stamp sets: Rose Wonder
Tools and embellishments: Rose Thinlits and Clear Wink of Stella
Adhesives: Tombow and Stampin' Dimensionals

May/ June at MHK Designs
#313 AAG at Craft your passion
#177 AG at 613 Avenue Create

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