Love Rose


I did a combination of challenges all in this one card. There are some real experts at this on Splitcoaststampers, and they have always been amazing to me. So, today I gave it a try. This card is for the Kitchen Sink Crew Challenge that involves stitching(mine is faux stitching). I also did this for the ssnotime 121 challenge which was to make a card using a lovey, dovey theme. And finally, for the limited supply challenge on SCS where we were to use red, pink, black and white and dots. (oops, I did use some green for my leaves.) This stamp and sentiment is from Kitchen Sink Stamps. I used pink petal ink, rhubarb stalk, mambo melon (SU), garden gree (SU), and new leaf. The red was the reverse piece of a Nestabilities shape, so I used this scrap and added white behind it that I stamped the rose onto. I embossed in gold the sentiment. The design paper was also a scrap from my stamp table from another project. Keeping that stampin' resolution to use scraps first!!!! LOL
