Vintage Wedding Roses

This one was designed with inspiration from a couple of challenges and I wanted to play with these beautiful roses and leaves.

The style is drawn from the 
Altenew April Challenge: From Places Abroad China - The Forbidden City, Beijing.
Particularly the ornamental panels framing the columns in bottom of the photo below along with the beautiful colors of blue, teal, green and rich gold were my focus.
This is my first time trying these wonderful stamps and dies. I think I am hooked.

I felt this would be perfect as a wedding or anniversary card.

Following the inspiration from 
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: In the Middle, 
I placed an embossed vellum Mr. & Mrs. sentiment panel in the "middle" of these vintage roses.

Supplies include: Altenew Vintage Roses and Super Script stamps & dies, Paper Trey Ink vellum cardstock.


  1. Stunning card! I believe that you've captured the essence of the Far East. (And I love glitter!!)
    Wonderful! Thank you for sharing your work with us this week for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.



  2. Beautiful card, Gaylynn. Thanks so much for playing along Altenew's challenge!
