Build a Rose for Paper Players #376

Hi Everyone.

Quick post for you this morning.   It's my pleasure to host the Paper Players challenge this week and it's a color challenge.

I originally intended this as a more masculine color set, but with the addition of any other color it can go many different places.   I decided to add gold to mine.

I used the Build a Rose set from Altenew - this really is one of my favorite sets.  Although I love it, I am still trying to perfect the arrangement of the individual stamps to get them in the right place.  Once I think I have cracked the formula - I will share it with you :-)

I decided to put my rose on a circle background with a little added texture.   I die cut a stitched circle and then ran that circle through my big shot with my Crafters Workshop brick stencil.

Here's a closeup so that you can see

I like use the stencils to emboss instead of the embossing folder as they give a softer look.

Here's my full card.  You can see the gold splatters that I added to the background.

I hope you will play along with us this week.  If you are looking for some fabulous inspiration - you only have to check out the wonderful cards from our design team:

Im off to spend some time in my craft room today (to escape the snow and -30 degree temps AGAIN!)  So, hopefully I should be back tomorrow with something to share.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
