~ Antique Magnolia Roses ~

**
It's time for another challenge at Roses on Paper.
This time around my wonderfully talented friend
and Design Team partner, Iris, has given us an
awesome sketch to work with.
**
I've been such a slack DT member of late,
but I love a great sketch and this one was
lovely to work with and gave me a good
opportunity to use my newest Nesties.
**
**
Summer once again has a wonderful prize
ready for the lucky winner of this challenge
so head over to our Roses on Paper Challenge
Blog for a list of the qualifying stamps and
to get your copy of the sketch.

For those of you that know me I don't have to
tell you how much I love roses. I was so excited
when my favourite stamp company, Magnolia,
released this gorgeus rose arrangement.
For the rose on the inside of the card I did a little
bit of pruning and trimmed off a few of the leaves
and a flower.
**
I've tried to make my card look a bit antiquey
(is that a word) by using Glamsol and using a
brush in my black inkpad to add a distressed
finish.

Ingredients:
Magnolia Stamp
Webster's Pages Patterned Paper
Bazzil
Nesties
Copic Markers
Gold Glamsol
