A Rose Bouquet

On Friday when I stopped by Charmaine's (Charmworm) blog I was happy to see that Beate's Weekend sketch was back; it had been too long so I decided I wanted to do it (as soon as I finished my valentines!)

This sketch was fun because I don't normally make long cards; this one is 9x4 so it fits perfectly in a letter envelope.

I used Stamping Bella's Rose Bouquet and coloured it with Lyra's and mineral spirits; then I added some glitter to the flower. The image is cut with nesties and mounted on scalloped nesties in So Saffron. The card base is Pink Pirouette and the DS paper is from Basic Greys new line Porcelain line mounted on So Saffron.

The circles are cut with a Martha Stewart circle cutter I found at Walmart (so the price was right!) I have to say I found it easy to use & it goes in measurements on 1/16 up to 6"

I added some ribbon and in the top right corner 3 bella bonbons in cotton candy because you know I can't live without bling on my card!

BIG NEWS!!!! Bellariffic Fridays are back!! Please go to Em's blog Bloggabella to see the first inspriation challenge; all you have to do is send a picture of your card to Em by Thursday 5pm EST and they will be shown on her blog - HOW COOL IS THAT?!?!
