Wow, I combined two challenges today to create my card…the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #SSSC66 and Curtain Call Act #27 color combination of Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery and Whisper White! I LOVE that color combination and it was a FUN sketch!
Since I was using Pink Pirouette, I knew I wanted a soft look to my Elements of Style rose image and show that it doesn't have to be vintage! I stamped the image in Versamark on Whisper White and used my sponge daubers and Stampin' Pastels to color in the roses and leaves! I cut it out with my Circle Scissors to a 3 1/2" size and then cut a circle mat from Melon Mambo at 3 5/8" size. The base card is 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 Pink Pirouette square card (I am SO glad that color will be coming back!) and layered with Certainly Celery cardstock. I stamped the vine image from Elements of Style with Certainly Celery Classic Ink in the corners on the right side. I used my Paper Piercing Tool and Mat Pack to make the designs in the corners of the left side. I added strips of designer paper in the background from Sweet Pea Designer Paper and Razzleberry Lemonade. FInally, I added a bow made from the Melon Mambo Polka Dot Ribbon and placed it on the base of the stamped rose image. That stamp set is so pretty, and what a great way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon stamping!
