Heartfelt Thanks

Hello everyone! 
Are you having a restful weekend so far? 

I want to show you a card I made which is featuring a lavender rose. Purple is not my favorite color, and rose not my favorite flower but I like roses in soft purple :). 

A couple of days ago I drew this purple rose using Polychromos colored pencils, but had no idea how I can involve this in a card. 
Actually I drew some shade in grey around the image, which I didn't like in the end. 
So the drawing was lying on my tabel for days. 
Today I cut  the rose out and made a bokeh background for it. 

For the bokeh I blended Seedless preserves and Shaded lilac DI on a white CS and sponged some bokeh using circle stencil and white pigment ink. I then cut a panel with a circle window from a white Bling CS from Bazzill and mounted it with the bokeh panel flat on a card base. I placed the rose and stamped the sentiment from Penny Black in purple. I finished off the card by adding some sequins and Wink of stella on the flower. 

I would like to enter this card in Less is More #268: What's outside your window.
Rose is not a spring flower, but I think the bokeh in the circle window gives the feeling of spring sunshine like what I have outside my window this weekend :).

Thank you for visiting today! 
Happy crafting!

Just gorgeous!!! I have a few rose stamps, but none are as beautiful as this. I would love to have that in a stamp. You colored it beautifully and I love the whole design of your card.

Tae Eun, you have drawn a beautiful rose. I am not fond of roses but I would buy this image! It is gorgeous. Like you, purple is NOT my favorite (or even close to favorite) color, but this is absolutely lovely. The bokeh background is perfect for it. I think you should become a stamp designer and draw us some beautiful images!

The gorgeousness of the rose goes without saying, TaeEun, but adding the bokeh background is out of this world.
