Fabulous Pennington Rose

This is such a sweet little die by Memory Box.

I cut it from some smooshed backgrounds then winked it with Stella!

Your embossed background is awesome for this single flower, Bonnie!!

Oh, this certainly is a beautiful flower! I love the dry embossing and the flower laying up against it, and that red piece just makes it all pop! Gorgeous! Hugs, Brenda

So delicate and pretty. Loving the way you've framed the embossing background, tucked that little stem right over it. A beautiful design with this nifty little die. TFS & Hugs

This card is so pretty ... and even more so in real life. :) Thank you so much Bonnie ... you really brightened my day. Love the smooshed backing for that sweet die. Looking forward to playing with the diecuts you sent me. :) xx

Oh Bonnie this is wonderful - love it.

Doris said...

What an inspiration! I can't wait to CASE this with a slender poppy stamp I have and didn't know how to use. Thanks for the layout idea, Bonnie.

Beautiful! Love all the little details, the subtle background texture, the light use of colors, the whole design!

Susan said...

Good for you, getting a photo that shows some of the sparkle from the Wink of Stella (I find it hard to photograph well). Love the sweet flower in the lovely tones of colour created by your smooshing. It looks perfect against your embossed background.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Very nicely done! I like the layering with that texture layer.

Patti said...

Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful simple ideas...Never though of using an embossing folder for a smaller piece...and bonus I have this Chevron one
agree the variation in texture sets this apart

Julia Aston said...

Love how you've framed your pretty die cut bloom Bonnie!

Barb Ghig said...

Your single Pennington Rose is so beautiful, Bonnie! I love how you used your smooshed background and your embossed panel really makes it pop! Such a sweet card and perfect for this month's challenge!
Thank you again for having me as your guest at CAS Mix Up...I really enjoyed it!
