Not mine but Stephanie's over at The Enchanting Rose blog. Stephanie asked me a little while ago if I would like to make some cards that she wanted to be part of her blog giveaway. She would like them to have roses on them. At first I was so excited that she would think of me and want my cards part of her giveaway, and then I kind of got sick to my stomach, I had never made a certain card for anyone before it has always been just what I came up with for that certain person.
I can't remember which one I started with now, but I made one card and just wasn't sure so I made another card and I wasn't sure of that one so I made another card, then I couldn't decided between them which I liked better, so I just sent them all to her and she has included them all in her giveaway.
It is so hard to tell in this first one but that background piece is brown.
I tried to use sentiments that can be used for more than one occasion on them too.
Spellbinders -- A2 Devine Eleoquence die
Elizabeth Craft design -- Rose die

This one I tried water coloring with Colorbursts, after I was done coloring I applied Gold Mettalic rub on to all the raised areas of the embossing folder.
