SmileyJ, here at SCS, has an Aunt who will be 102 in a few days time. Rose loves violets, I can't make violets, but I did the next best thing, I hand made the flowers with violet colored paper.
I did a template (actually I did about 42,000 before I was happy), from there I traced around my template and made lots of flowers. I used a paper piercer to add veins, and inked the center and edges to give an aged effect.
I cut the hamer tone card stock at an angle and scored it to be a three panel card. I got the idea from a forum here a couple of weeks ago.
Thank you Sheri for letting us know about Aunt Rose!!!

This card will put a smile on my aunt's face. It is beautiful and elegant!
