Ripped roses

The beautiful rose-printed vellum I've used in this card has been in my stash for years and years and YEARS. It was a gift from a friend and is just so beautiful it's taken me all these years to steel myself to use it, knowing that once it's gone, it's gone.

I've simply torn it to fit across my card, added a layer or torn white card with a stamped and embossed rose, and a corner embellishment of a rose (an old Kanban stamp) also stamped and embossed - I used Versacolour Old Rose ink and clear embossing powder.

I am sharing this with

CAS-ology - TEAR
