It's the last challenge of the month at ODBD and that means anything goes! I really love how versatile the rose is from the Fragrance stamp set. I stamped it on watercolor paper and colored it watercolor brush pens. I then die-cut it out using ODBD Matting Circles Dies. I embossed it, left it in the die and sponged just a bit of gray ink around the edges. I then layered it a black Doily. The background is made from repeatedly stamping the rose onto white card stock.
I then embossed the song title How Great Thou Art in white. I love this hymn - it's my dad's favorite and I remember learning to play it on the piano for him. And no, I can't play it any longer. :(
I also did a bit of stamping inside the card - a portion from the hymn surrounded by more roses... my mom's favorite flower. This card is definitely inspired by my parents.
And please check out my other CT sisters for more wonderful inspiration:
