Love and Roses
I first started with a 5.5x5.5 card (just because I like working with this size), added a 5.25x5.25 piece of pink cardstock that I punched using SU ticket punch on the corners. Before I adhered it, I added a strip of pink satin ribbon and tucked it on the back. Then a 5x5 striped DP was added, again with the corners punched using the SU ticket punch. Next I dry embossed a piece of white card stock using the Argyle Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. I don't know if you can see it or not, but I lightly chalked the raised pieces to tie in the lime green colors. I punched out the bottom using Martha Stewart's lace punch and the corners were punched using the Fiscars Fancy Corner Punch.
I stamped the rose with Versafine Black and used the Marvey markers to water color it. Before doing that though, I added the word Love under the rose and touched just a corner of the rose to tie it all together.
I needed to add some of the lime green, so I cut out and embossed lime green cardstock using my circle scalloped dies and then added a circle of plain black circle for some pizazz. The rose is popped up with Thermo Web Dimensionals. I added just a simple lime green bow for more texture and to combine the colors.
The smallest black pearls were added on the corners and at each scallop for extra interest.
