Here is my card:


I picked Old Tea Rose for my card :-) and purple for the color! This set comes with the wonderful sentiments to match the beautiful rose image and I wanted to use the sentiment as a focal point of the card.
The card was designed with Classic Ivory cardstock, CME Crocus, Pistachio and Rich Browns cardstock. I stamped the rose images with Memento Tuxedo Black on the background mat and colored with Copic markers.



The rest of supplies: Memento Toffee Crunch, CME ribbon - Rich Brown-Ivory, Prima tea rose, pearls, Martha Stewart punches, Spellbinders dies







Next Hop : Ivanka Lentle


Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!
