Rose topiary

Hello again!
I'm showing you my "rose topiary" digi image this morning from A Passion for Stamps which is one of my new collection based on the flower theme. I think this one lends itself more to the vintage look so I've added some distressing, old paper and lace.
When I was actually drawing the image I had thought of adding a bow to the stem but left it out so you could add your own bow to give texture.
I've used Glossy Accents on the berries and flower pot (see close up pic)

I had Mothers Day in mind with the release of the floral images but in the next few days, you'll see some completely different images.

I'm entering thic card for the following challenges;
Totally Papercrafts....Lots of Spots
A Spoonful of Sugar...distress inks,pearls and glitter

SALE of clear stamps

I've decided to have a sale of my polymer clear unmounted stamps to coincide with the launch of my new digi images on Monday.
The clear stamps are all HALF PRICE and the sale prices are marked beside them in the sidebar.
