Raindrops And/On Roses

You know that song from the Sound of Music-"Favorite Things"? It makes for an awesome challenge and Flourishes has done that. My inspiration came from the line Raindrops on Roses and Whiskers on Kittens. My sister, the veterinarian, has all the kitten sets at her place, so...here's my card using the only rose set I have, which is SU's Both Way Blossoms. I tried for a shabby chic look with the sketch from Card Patterns by using some paper from K&Company and distressing the edges. There is faux stitching around the panels as well. The roses were spritzed with So Saffron and Rose Red before stamped in Chocolate Chip ink and covered with Crystal Effects. The "raindrops," although not exactly ON the roses, are RainDots that have been distressed a bit with Chocolate Chip ink before adhering.


  1. You've definately captured the shappy chic look here - I love it! The roses are colored perfectly and I like that pop of black for the background. I'm so happy to be the sponsor over at Card Patterns this week - thanks for playing along.

    PS. Cute blog title!!

  2. This is fantastic! I love the soft feel this has. Plus all the distressed edges and stitching.
