Scor it

This card was made for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge FTTC28, I have used the rose from the I love Roses set (many thanks to Carol for sending me stamped copies of this image). The challenge was 'to score somewhere on our card' I chose to score the mustard background layer.
My images were coloured with my favourite Prismacolor Pencils blended with odourless mineral spirits. Normally I would colour the roses red or pink but this time I stepped outside the box and went with mustard yellow and orange. I am pleased how it came up. This card was very easy to make, probably one of the most basic ones I have done for a while. Sometimes we get a little carried away and it's nice to go back to basics once in a while.

Until Next Time
Inking of you all

I love how you scored the background as it sure is different. makes the card different. all flowers are different colors also. I just think the card is gorgoeus and you did great.

It's turned out beautiful and the colour of the rose is similar to one we have. I like your layout very much.
Great card Michelle.
