Open-minded Crafting Fun Themed Challenge ~ "Roll Out The Red"

Hi Friends,

Today over at the "Open-minded Crafting Fun" Challenge blog we are starting a new challenge today. This weeks theme is "Roll Out The Red" and our amazing sponsor is Dilly Bean Stamps! This wonderful image is named "Tula's Heart" and as soon as I saw it I immediately began envisioning it with a vintage feel so that is what I focused on, and here is the result...

This is the first time I have attempted this style and I have to say it really felt good. It is currently my favorite card I have ever made. The distressed edges, the aged lace, and of course the handmade roses really add charm to this card. The beautiful die with pearl accents really gave a perfect backdrop for this adorable image. Check out some of the close up details below.
