FTTC168 CARDPATTERNS 164

Super-quick post from me today my friends!  I'm sharing a "PINK-A-LICIOUS" card I made for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge - FTTC168, using this week's fab Card Patterns Sketch (164).

Lots of lovely layers - all the elements of the sketch are there I think, but decided to make Flourishes 'Lenten Rose' stamped image the focal point of my card.  The roses are stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and then coloured using various Copic Markers, cut out by hand and then popped up onto three different die cut labels.

I used some Melissa Frances patterned paper for the background and created a border on top of that by die cutting a pink felt border to which I added cream silk, white mini ric-rac and pink/cream striped cotton twill (all from The Ribbon Reel).

Thank you so much for looking.  Have a great day!

Gorgeous! The roses are beautiful and the color combo is striking. I love all the goodies you packed onto this one - the lacy border, the doily, the ribbon and the bling but your coloring still takes center stage (as it should)! So beautiful!
