Beautiful Rose

It is three sleeps until Christmas and I am sure you are all busy preparing, we all celebrate in different ways but the most important thing is that we remember WHY we celebrate....
 
 
 
For some reason this card has shown up in my drafts, inspite of being a card I made when I was on the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge Design Team, so I thought I would share it anyway....
 
 
 
 
I love this beautiful digital rose designed by Teri from Delicious Doodles - her images are always divine!  If you have time I would recommend a visit to Teri's Blog, the artwork there will inspire you!
 
 
 
 
Layering, sponging, tearing and a touch of bling - seems I haven't changed - always favourites with me!
 
 
 
I have raised the rose head and some of the leaves to add some dimension - I love the extra 'pop' it gives the card!  From memory I sent the original card to my Mum for her birthday!
 
I hope you don't mind seeing something I have posted before - I am busy working on projects that cannot be seen yet, as well as preparing for Christmas - I love this season and we have decided not to complicate it by over catering and rushing around.  The shopping is done and if there is something we don't have - well, it is too late! LOL!  I am sure we don't lack for anything.
 
If I don't see you beforehand, have a blessed Christmas - I hope it is filled with everything you love and in amongst the festivities you take the time to remember why we celebrate CHRISTmas.  Thank you for your comments and all of the support you give me - you make blogging such an amazing place to be!! Your encouragement is such a blessing for me - it makes my day! God bless you!
