Rosy Picket Fence

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at the Double D Challenge blog. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the theme “Rose Garden”. Be inspired by what you see, maybe it’s the DD_RoseGardencolors, flowers, the lamp post or even the picket fence. Also use roses handmade, stamped, die cut or purchased. Please visit Double D Challenges and see more wonderful samples from our talented designers and join in the fun! We have a prize to give away to one lucky player which will be chosen by while a Top Creative Winner and Top 3 will be chosen by the Design Team.

I decided to use the right bottom tile as inspiration for my card. I love the pretty white picket fence with the pink roses and the green foliage. I used designer paper for my background and the added the picket fence with the birdhouses with mirror tape for dimension. I glued two die cuts together for the fence and extended the one birdhouse pole for a better coverage of the card front.  I finished off with a sentiment, a lace strip, a bow, leaves and lots of pink roses. A few gemstones are the final touches. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

I entered my card in the following challenges:


The picket fence and roses
