Trying Tole...

My mom is a neverending song in my heart of comfort, happiness, and being. I may sometimes forget the words but I always remember the tune. -Graycie Harmon

I have always admired ladies like Linda Duke who can make Extraordinary sculptures out of paper, so I decided Mother's Day was a good time to try a Tole Rose. I also decided to use Julee's sketch challenge as an easy way to put it all together, I really enjoy participating in sketch challenges, it amazes me how different every card is from the same general layout.

Basic Grey: Perhaps 6X6 Pad
SU: So Saffron, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Certainly Celery, Old Olive CS and Ink, Grosgrain Ribbon, Crystal Effects
K and Co: Adhesive Pearls
Marvy: Giga Scallop Circle Punch, Mega Circle Punch
Aud Designs: Swirl Unmounted
