Vintage Rose

Hello, it's Gracie! Welcome to a new post for Classy Cards 'n Such weekly challenge. This time our challenge is Pink and Polka Dots.

The photo inspiration for the challenge is both fun and vintage, with those lovely porcelain clown dolls, but I decided to go vintage all the way with my card for today.

I love using digital patterned papers, and I only print them on White Pearl Linen. I sponged the polka dot paper mixing inks,in various colors. I used a pierced matting die from Our Daily Bread Designs Flourished Star Pattern set to cut the patterned papers. I cut the patterned layers in halves and adhered one on top of the other to create a base for all the embellishments.

I created a rose using Spellbinders Rose Creations and sprayed it with a mix of water and ink in a Berry color, using a Spritzer Bottle. I decided I wanted to make that lovely paper flower stand out, so I created a Rosette that I also colored with inks, and attached it to the back of the flower using an antique brad.

I added more elements to the design, starting with a lovely filigree window die cut with Spellbinders Window Three, to which I also die cut a motif using the very new Majesty set. I used a gorgeous, gorgeous metallic card stock for the window called Stardream Rose Quartz.

I used the ink mix again to spritz to custom color a few pieces of Chalk White Seam Binding. I used a piece of the ribbon for the center of the patterned mat, and another to embellish the Rosette. I also added some lovely flourishes from ODBD's Fancy Foliage, that I decorated with some Baby Pearls - LeCreme.

I stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment on a little tag, using ODBD's sets Mini Tag Sentiments and Mini Tags. I sponged that little tag with a mix of inks too, and added a piece of linen thread to it. Finally, I adhered the embellished layer to a coordinating pink card base I cut with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A, using no other than 1/2" Scor-Tape.

I hope you enjoyed today's post. I invite you to join our challenge this week! Polka dots and pink is surely a classic combination, and I know you can come up with a beautiful creation using it!
