Celebrate Your Special Day

Celebrate card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from SugarPea Designs
Here's my card for this month's SugarPea Designs Mix It Up challenge.  I paired the sketch with elements from the inspiration photo (the rose image and color scheme) for this simple card.

I stamped up a trio of roses and a pair of leafy branches using stamps from the SPD Funky Wreath-Spring Addition set, then used the coordinating dies to cut out the stamped images. The base of the flower was stamped in pale pink ink, then I added the detail image on top in a darker pink ink, stamping off once before stamping on the image so that there would be less contrast between the two shades of pink.   After settling on an arrangement that I liked, the images were adhered to a white scallop edged panel cut with one of the Birthday Journal Card dies.  Two of the roses were adhered with foam tape to give the arrangement a bit of dimension.  I added a sentiment from the Celebrate All the Things stamp set to the left of the floral cluster.  The mix of fonts works well with the pretty florals.  I adhered the finished panel to a coordinating pink card base.

Materials Used:
Funky Wreath-Spring Addition and Celebrate All the Things stamp sets, Funky Wreath-Spring Additions and Birthday Journal Card dies (SugarPea Designs); Memento Rose Bud, Angel Pink, and Pear Tart inks (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Pale Peony cardstock (Papertrey Ink); foam tape
