Pink Florals

Hello crafters and followers.  Hope you are having a good day.

My card today is me playing with my roses.  I started with a white C5 base card followed by a piece of brown pearlescent card.  I then matted some pink paper on which was from my crafty stash, a freebie from an old Making Cards magazine.  I did distress around the edges with vintage photo distress inks.

I stamped my image with pink pearlescent ink.  The image is from chocolate baroque and came as an A5 plate with a butterfly stamp too.  I die cut my image using my spellbinders and stencilled a little with vintage photo distress ink.  I layered this onto another piece of brown pearlescent card die cut from a spellbinders die.  The ribbon is thread through a diecut from marianne and finished off with pink flower gems.  My flowers are made using some brown paper and I used the petal flowers from dimensions to make the roses.  I finished my roses off by spraying them with pink glitter spray from crafters companion.

Hope you like the card.  Thanks for taking a peek and you take care.
