New Challenge #72 at Glitter n Sparkle

Well this has been a week 
of mixed emotions.
My Nephew has finally arrived
safe and sound and is so adorable,
but unfortunately my grandmother
passed away 2 days later.
She was a wonderful person and 
I will miss her greatly,
though she will always be in my 
heart and memories.
This weeks card was made with both of these
special occasions in mind.

The Purple Roses are to signify a few things
as well as being a romantic card.
Love at First Sight (for my Nephew),
but also Enchantment, Magic,
Opulence, Glory and Majesty
(all which to me are for my Grandmother).

Anyway here is my project for this week:-
(sorry about the picture it was the best I could do)

My project for this week is:-

Rosie digi stamp 
from Delicious Doodles 
(one of our sponsors)

To begin with I cut my base Card from
 A4 Amythest Card
and trimmed it down to make it 14cm square.
I also cut out a 13cm square from
Lilac Card

Using the 2nd largest Scalloped Oval Die
(X-Cut Nesting Dies (5pk))
I die-cut out Black Card
Also from the Black Card I die-cut out
Scalloped Edge Border Die
(X-Cut Border Dies (3pk))

I coloured in my Image 
using my Promarker Pens.
Roses - Slate, Maroon, Amethyst, Lilac.
Leaves - Moss, Pear Green, Apple.
Skin - Blush, Vanilla, Satin.
Hair - Gold, Mustard, Buttercup, Pastel Yellow.
Cheeks - Dusky Pink.
Lips - Slate.
Eye-shadow - Lilac.
Nails - Maroon.
Dress - Lavender.
Then I die cut it out using the same 
Scalloped Oval Die as the Black Card,
and placed it on to fit.

To follow the Sketch
I put the Scalloped Border at the bottom
and using a Purple/Gold Flowered Embroidered Ribbon
(Boyes Haberdashery)
wrapped around the Lilac Card
 for the second line.
Placing the layered Digi Stamp on top of them.

For my sentiment I used a 'Cherish' Peel-off Sticker
which I backed onto a spare piece of the Amethyst Card.
And for the corners
I used Gold Filigree Corner Peel-Offs
