PDEC 52 Questions - Ch# 24 - Main Color Yellow

Fantastic Friday Bloggers,

Hope you have a Fantastic Friday planned for today.  Another beautiful weekend is beginning!!!

Today at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges 52 Question we were to make a project featuring the color YELLOW!  Yellow is such a happy color!  I chose to make a Peace Rose.  The petals of this Rose are Yellow with pink edges.  Peace Roses are among my favorites.  In the past in the DFW area there were Rose vendors on most corners.  They purchased their roses in Tyler, known as the Rose Capital of the World ... or at least Texas!  I think they were $5/dozen.  My boyfriend at the time would buy me roses every Friday/Saturday.  I really enjoyed getting roses.  Now, roses are $75/dozen ... if you're lucky.  Well on to my project.

Peace Rose - Yellow as Main Color
The ribbon is so shiny that it reflected the flash from my camera.  Even without the flash I got a reflection from my lighting. 

Here is my recipe:
Tag:  ELEGANT EDGES, page 46, , cut @ 4.5" using Oblong and Shadow features.
Rose:  WALK IN MY GARDEN, page 98 + cut @ 3.75" using Blackout feature
Cardstock:  The Paper Company and Colorbok
Patterned Paper:  Spring Fling & Summer Days Combo Stack (DCWV)
Ink:  Shabby Shutters (Ranger) and Pink Pigment Brush Pad (Colorbox - Clearsnap)
Fiber:  5/8" Sheer Garbo Powder Pink (Offray)
Adhesives:  ATG (Scotch), Ultra Thin Glue Dots (Glue Dots Intl, LLC) and Zig 2 Way Glue Pen Fine Tip (EK Success)

I really love how the Rose cut from WALK IN MY GARDEN is so versatile.  You can use it with or without the black out feature.  For this project I chose to cut the rose head and rose body with the black out feature to show the intricate features on the cuts.  It was super easy to put this together and I will be using it again in more projects.
