Sweet!

Hi again. I certainly didn't expect to get any stamping time in this morning, but I checked the ways to use it challenge on SCS and just had to... KWIM? The challenge was to use something sweet. I'm not sure I have any food stamps, so I went in a totally different direction. Sweet smelling roses. Using a favorite set and mostly scraps, this card took less than 30 minutes.

I used Roses in Winter (SU)... colors: regal rose, melon mambo, rose red, certainly celery & old olive. I masked over the flower when I stamped all the green. The sentiment is stamped in black stazon. And then over the top I stamped Linen (SU) in creamy caramel. A bit of distressing and sponging around the edges. Layers: melon mambo, basic black & certainly celery under the white. I already had the melon mambo card base cut and folded as a hinge card, so I just went with that. The ribbon runs between the layers, but that part is glued together, so it doesn't show on the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed.
