Layered Fifth Avenue Rose

This card is made with the SU stamp set called Fifth Avenue Floral. The funny thing about stamp sets, sometimes I see a set and I can hardly wait to get it!! Then I get it, use it once or twice and forget about it. Other times I buy a set simply because it is on sale or in a demo pre-order and use it over and over again. Then sometimes I just pass by a set completely until I see all the beautiful things someone else makes with it. This was a set that I simply ignored until I saw all the wonderful cards everyone else was creating.

For this card I embosed the rose 3 times with white EP and simply trimmed 2 of the flowers and layered them on the bottom image using Dimensionals. It is hard to see

in the photo but the white has been run through the Big Shot with a Texturz plate. I love all of SU colors but their reds are fabulous!! This is Riding Hood Red that will be retiring. I like the darker red in this paper, although Ruby Red is a good substitute. SU Real Red paper is a very true red, not too orange or too pink. Even before I was such a fan of SU or a demo I would always stay stocked on Real Red paper!!

I think I should have added a little glitter to this, maybe some dazzling diamonds?
