Purple Roses

Remember when I posted the TSG blog candy giveaway recently, and to enter I asked you to list your favorite rose? Well, my favorite colored roses are purple ones (I think they're called Sterling roses) so here's a card for you purple lovers.



After the image was colored, I added some Lilac Shimmerz to the roses and Angel Wings Shimmerz to the edge of the vase. Both the white and purple Nestabilities panels are up on Dimensionals.

Here's the inside of the card:

Beautiful! I didn't know the name of those roses (and I work sometimes for my cousin who is a florist!!!) but they are stunning! I hardly ever use purple either, but I think this year it is going to be a new trend-you're on the cutting edge!

my brother requested that a dozen purple roses be sent to his daughter every year on her birthday ~ he died from cancer when she was 8 mos old and now she is a teen.
purple roses are beautiful!

I used to have a Sterling rose bush in me Southern California home and boy do I miss it. You perfectly captured the geyish blueish hue of the Sterling. I'm quite impressed.

Gorgeous!! I love purple! I just love your blog, your work is just so crisp and not overdone, it's perfect!

P.S Nascar side note: I made a Tony Stewart car for my son's Pinewood derby race, it turned out pretty cool (he's 5)

Lovely! Roses are always perfect, no matter what the color! Aren't Sterling roses the ones without thorns? Anyways, your card is beautiful and the pearls on the ribbon are a fabulous touch! :)
