Fairytale Rose

I am back... If you missed it my son graduated high school this last week and it has been a whirlwind of activity here. All went very well, but I am having a hard time believing that my only child is now an adult, out of school and on his way to college.

Okay enough about my personal life you are here to see a card and I have this one for you. It is for FIVE challenges, listed below. This one took me some time, first off I was having hard time getting back the creative juices and then I had the drying time of the crystal lacquer that I used on the glass globe thingy. As for that I drew it free hand and the rose is from Friendship's Garden from Gina K Designs. The rose petals are also hand drawn. The sentiment is computer generated.

Okay here are the challenges:

1. Saturday Cinema #36 Beauty and the Beast
2. StampTV color challenge STVCC16 to use red, brown and white
3. Card Positioning Systems SPC120 a sketch challenge,
their sponsor this week is 2RedBananas and they are using the same sketch for their own challenge.
4. Our Creative Corner to use a boarder punch
5. Pile It On to use two ribbons and at least one other challenge

Pile it on is a new challenge blog this is only their second week.

So there you have it five challenges.

Card Details:
paper: bazzill basics french silk, basic grey boxer, pure luxury white
ribbon: chocolate brown SU, sheer brown from my stash
copics:E25, E29, G99, YG95, R27, R29
