Roses! Again!

Once again, I am using the rose background for an Impression Obsession challenge, which this week is, happily for me, Fun with Flowers.  For this card, I embossed the image with clear embossing powder, then sponged black onto the leaves, and gray onto the flowers.  I was really nervous that the black ink would stain the clear embossing, so I was so relieved that it did not!  Because the background is white, I carefully outlined the flowers and leaves to make sure they were well defined.  I then ironed off the clear powder. The text is from the Greetings: Top Edgers die set.

To my chagrin, the roses, which I had not realized until I went to photograph the card, are not oriented in every direction, but there is clearly a right-side-up to this stamp, so I'm going to have to try to redo this card, sigh. I'm not sure it will survive the surgery!

Love this card. Never would have noticed the direction of the roses. No need to redo, it's fabulous.
