AH 314 - Layered Rose along the Lines

Welcome to Atlantic Hearts Sketch #314! 

I simply love this sketch - it can be very simple or it can be taken to a much more detailed level depending on how it is interpreted. I can’t wait to see the design team members' interpretations as well as the participants' interpretations of this one! 

I chose to flip the sketch 180 degrees but I wanted to maintain the three skinny lines because I really liked how that kept some form of continuity on the card design that I had in mind. I considered using a different type of line like a chevron border but it would have been too busy. I used glitter paper for those lines, though, to add some extra interest. 

I used a layered rose die for the flower and three shades of purple. The leaves have two bright shades of green and I stamped the sentiment using one of those shades of green and embossed it so it would really stand out. I dry embossed the background with a rose embossing folder to provide a detailed background for the entire card. I added some silver embellishing thread behind the flower as well. The whole card is raised with foam tape. 

Come and join us at Atlantic Hearts and show us how you interpret the sketch shown above.
