Pink roses ...

Good evening ... time to share another card from my marathon crafting weekend ...

I had a piece of card that I had coloured with distress inks and stamped and heat embossed some images on - my intention had been to use it for a card but I didn't like it!! So out came my dies and the background made beautiful roses (in my opinion) - I die cut them in white as well as I needed solid images for the design so inlaid the white into the pink.  I cut some thin strips of washi tape to create the background, stamped the sentiment on a scrap of card and then assembled the elements using foam adhesive.

I used:

STAMPlorations - Subway Art Builders DARE
Cutplorations - Trendy Spring Bloom dies

I'm entering the following challenges:

STAMPlorations CUTplorations May Challenge - inspired by the pink flowers.
