Baja Rose




TGIF Friday Peeps!!! We are having some crazy weather happening around these parts today. We have snow predicted!

Today's card is made with the sketch at the Stamps and Smiles Blog. I love the sketches that Mercy creates. Also I was super excited to read that I had won last weeks sketch and a fabulous new stamp set. Cuppy Love! How cool is that! Another great reason to do sketch challenges, you might win something cool!!!

So now onto today's card! I just got this Parisian Breeze DS paper and I just love it!! Now I don't know if you would ever see a baja colored rose in nature but I am sure you can get one , I know they can dye them to any color you want. So let's just pretend mine is one I purchased from the florist!!!

The rose comes from the 5th Ave. Stamp set. I don't have it yet, but had stamped off a few images on watercolor paper when I was at my demo's house. This is the last of them, so I better order it or sneak a few more images out from her this week. LOL!

I used some baja breeze and my aqua painter to color the rose and darkened it a bit with a little teal ink. I added some diamond dust to the edges of the flower with my two way glue pen, it is soooooo sparkly IRL. Here is a close up so you can see the sparkle better:



The big ol chunky corduroy brads are some I purchased from Hobby Lobby, they are made by The Paper Studio. The sentiment I used comes from the retired hostess set, "Best Yet". Love that set!

Well, that is all I have for you today, hope you enjoy my baja rose and thank you sooooooo much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
