Rosy Celebration

Today's card uses a set I haven't used for quite some time - Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 Step Roses & Hearts.  I love the realistic images these stamps create.

For this card, I used the colors from Color Throwdown and the sketch from Seize the Sketch.

I scored the Pink Pirouette card base and used some retired In Color DSP layered onto Crumb Cake.  The sentiment from CASual Fridays Shenanigans set was stamped in Real Red onto the DSP.  The rose and leaves were stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using Real Red and Pistachio Pudding inks.  

I paper pierced the top right corner of the card base to add a bit of interest and threw a couple of sequins on as well :)

Thanks for looking.

Such a pretty, lifelike rose! I like the way you used it for the half-circle element of the sketch. I also love the scored lines and the piercing.
