Yellow Rose - A card for 5 challenges.

Good evening. Here is a nice bright easel card which I am going to enter in 5 challenges:

Totally Papercrafts #57 - Shaped cards
Crafty Catz Weekly challenge - Colour Combo, Yellow and Green
The Stamp Man #18 - Mother's Day - Floral Theme
Sentimental Sundays #46 - Let's go Green (Colour or Recycled) + a sentiment
Diecut Dreams Challenge #85 Mothers Day or Special Friend

To create the shape I used Grand Nesties in both Scalloped Ovals and Ovals on both pale yellow hammered card and plain green card. Many of these were cut, matted and layered to give the final look. The largest plain oval was stamped with a flourish stamp (Creative Expressions) using Shabby Shutters Distress Ink.

The large central rose, the leaves, the smaller rose on the base of the easel and the sentiment  are all stamps by Creative Expressions. They were stamped on white card, coloured with Distress inks and Aquamarkers.

The double bow incorporates both pale yellow organza ribbon with satin edges and pale green satin ribbon.

The sentiment says: "If I had a rose for every time I thought of you, I'd be picking roses for a life time." My Mum passed away nearly 3 years ago so I don't have one to give the card to but I do think of her a lot.
