Inspiration Roses


I made this card for today's inspiration challenge over at SCS. I love inspiration challenges as they always lead me to make a card I wouldn't normally come up with - whether it's colours, layout or theme there is lots to be inspired by!

I chose this inspiration piece and used the black and blue background idea as well as the orange/yellow/pink roses. The sketch I used is this week's OCC sketch.

The roses were created by stamping the two-step roses from 'A Rose is a Rose' using Pretty in Pink and Pumpkin Pie, then sponging So Saffron over the top. The leaves are Certainly Celery and Garden Green. The Brilliant Blue squares in the background were stamped with the Friendly background stamp (newly added to my stash!!). The little tag is from the UK's new mini catalogue - and punch and coordinating stamp set with sooo many possibilities! I tied it around the regal rose ribbon with some linen thread.

Thanks for stopping by today!
