Rose Colored Blooms

Wow, it’s Wednesday already! This week is just flying by. Yesterday I combined the Color Challenge at SCS with the Sketch from 2Sketches4You. I have to say I absolutely adore this card! 

I started with a 4 1/4 X 8 1/2 card base scored at 4 1/4.  The next layer is a Whisper White and I used the eyelet punch along the bottom edge.  I then paired it with the Raspberry Tart designer series paper.  Around this layer I wrapped a piece of the Rose Red double stitched ribbon. 

My main image layer was made by stamping the flowers in Basic Gray ink.  I then stamped the insides in Rose Red and More Mustard, but I stamped off before stamping onto the card layer.  I made the leaves by repeatedly stamping them in Kiwi Kiss ink along the bottom edge.  So that my sentiment would stand out a bit more I used Chocolate Chip craft ink.  I finished it off with a Fire Rhinestone brad and then attached the layer with dimensionals.

So what do you think?  I think it may be my favorite of the week.
