Romantic Rose

I have a ton of stamps of roses, but there is something about the rose from a springtime day (a•muse studio) it has a very vintage look to it, and I thought it would be good for a faux parchment technique card.
It has a lot of elements I haven't used in a very long time.  Eyelets are so easy to apply with the Cropadile, but I can't even remember the last time I used them.  It took me longer to find my eyelets than it did to make the whole rest of the card.  I love this corner punch, but it is so rare that I think to put fancy corners on my cardstock.  The vellum and the painted paper are leftovers from a card I did a couple of weeks ago.  Sheer ribbon, heated to make it curl, topped with a button tied with scrapper's floss - I haven't done that in a  long time, but it's still an elegant finish to a card.  There is enough room for a sentiment, should I need to add one.

LOVE this beauty! There is something about vellum/parchment that is just so elegant! I love the homemade paper- and love the corners and the eyelets. I would be able to find the eyelets- its the Cropadile...hmmmm I'll have to go look and see if I can find it now.....!

Eyelets are definitely the best way to fasten vellum. I should use them more often too.
Thanks for joining the Daring Cardmaker's dare and creating this lovely card!

What a beautiful, elegant rose card, Juliet. I, too, am a collector of lovely rose images - but do not have this one. It's very pretty.
