Paper Rose: You are Gorgeous Inside & Out

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! Please join me in a very big welcome to first time guest blogger to Simon Says Stamp, Donna Lewis! Isn’t her card just lovely? Be sure to read on to learn more and enjoy!

The inspiration for this card is the Milly’s Bouquet stamp itself. It is such an elegant design that I knew I wanted a ‘grown up’ color scheme. What is more grown up than brown? I paired this with pink for a pop of color, and a pretty touch that seems to be a requirement of all my cards.


I used my colorless Copic marker a lot in the making of this card, using it tip to tip with my colored markers, so that I could fade to white. The background was spattered with watered down white gouache to soften it.
