A Rose Gift Set For Avery

This weekend I went to a special baby shower, special because I have known the parents of little Avery for many years, and special because precious Avery was born several weeks early and weighed in at only 2.5 pounds. I'm quite happy to report she is doing well, gaining weight and getting stronger every day- she is a little fighter!! There is nothing I like better than a spunky girl :) I made a towel and washcloth set using a soft flannel, and super soft terry fabric, this embroidery reminded me so much of the mixed bouquet stamp set from Stampin'Up! that I had to make a matching set of thank you cards!
I paired the bold colors of Melon Mambo, and chocolate chip, with the soft shades of pink pirouette, and white. The result is a striking card with a beautiful focal point, that big gorgeous rose. I embossed the roses on water color paper and painted them with reinkers and an aquapainter. I love that you can just keep layering on the color for new effects.
