The first thing that struck me in the inspiration photo was the roses. They are gorgeous so I looked through my stamps (this took a little time cause I have a lot of MFT stamps and I looked at all of them) pulling any that had flowers. Then I finally narrowed it down to this Pure Innocence. Next I pulled out my favorite flower dies, the royal roses and punched out a bunch of pink roses and a few leaves to keep to the color theme of the inspiration photo. It's hard to see but there's a little rose charm hanging off the pink cord bow that's tied around the center panel behind the image. All the paper edges are sponged with Ranger "Tea Dye", it looks really good on the roses. There's some bling in the corners and the centers of the roses and for the final touch there's Star Dust Stickles on the roses. I love the way this card turned out, it's going to be really difficult to give this one away.
Here's the deets:
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black" and Ranger "Tea Dye"
paper - the Paper Cut "Pink Lemonade" and "Sweet Tooth" card stock; Stampin' Up "DSP Pattern's Stack Subtles" for the roses; Authentique "Bundle collection - Uncommon" dp; green scraps
miscellaneous - copics; My Favorite Things "Oval", "Oval Dainty Doily", "Royal Roses", "Royal Leaves" die-namics; EK Success "Scallopey Scallop" border punch; bling; pink cord; rose charm; machine stitching; "Star Dust" stickles
