This is a triple challenge card! First-it features a field of roses for the Free for All, 2nd-It has a smeared frame around my focal point for the Mixability and finally it is a CASE of a card from Queen for the Day Phyllis/Tater's gallery. I chose this beauty to CASE. I used a purchased rose instead of the dp, moved my bow down a bit and used a ticket punched frame for my sentiment instead of a die cut. I used more goodies from yesterday's shopping trip. I started with my dp which had a similar image to my dry embossing that is now covered by the HUGE rose, oh well! After embossing I sponged some Soft Suede over the raised areas for definition. I love these ef's; they give really deep embossing! I also smeared some Espresso paint on it and the Sahara frame behind it. My sentiment panel has the verse embossed in Early Espresso ep. I then stamped my 2 step roses in Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose doing some stamped off and some with only Pretty in Pink. I took an idea from Sallie's card and softened this with white paint smeared around the edges.
