TGIF Peeps. So glad it is finally here!
Today's card is made with the sketch on the Stamps and Smiles Fresh Batch Blog.
I wasn't feeling to creative when I made this one. I do love to watercolor this rose from the Fifth Avenue Floral set. This one is colored with some Cameo Coral. Makes a really pretty rose.
The rest of the card just never seemed to come together like I wanted. I tried several things with it but wasn't feeling any of it. I was just too distracted with the Grey's Season Finale.
Anyway, I started with a base of basic gray, followed with some cameo coral and then some DS paper from the Walk in the Park pack.
Next some more basic gray and then whisper white and some coral eyelet trim. The sentiment is the one from the Great Friend set, I really love it, as you may have noticed, and is stamped in basic gray ink. First I stamped the frame and then used the stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up. I pierced all around the edges of the main panel with my piercing tool and mat pack. The Rose is cut out and mounted up on dimensionals as is the entire main panel. I added some basic gray brads and some gray taffeta ribbon.
Well, that is it for today, thanks a bunch for stopping by, remember to tell your friends how much they mean to you and of course, HAPPY STAMPING!!!
