Inspired By Stamping #48 - Best Wishes

It's time for a new color challenge at Inspired By Stamping!  This week our colors are White, Light Pink and Sage Green.


I looked through my stash of papers for the right pattern, and found just the right thing.   After adhering it, I embossed the whole card front with a brocade, one of my fave folders.


I LOVE the flowers from the Inspired By Stamping store, and wanted to draw attention to this pretty pink rose.  To make the fabric rosette behind it, I grabbed some green lace and a scalloped circle die, and cut out 6 circles from the fabric.  Two layered circles became the base, and with the remaining four, I folded each in half, then in half again.  The four "pie wedges" were laid upon the base and a brad secured them all together.  Then I glued on the IBS pink rose, and ta-da!  


A tiny tag adorns the big blossom.  I used "best" and "wishes" from the set Birthday Greetings, inked the edges, and tied on a twine bow.  See the pretty white crochet lace?  That is Fabric Tape from IBS!  I love it.    

Come play with us!  You don't need IBS goodies to play, there's a prize every week, and we'd love to have you.  Just link your card up HERE.  

Thanks for coming by.  :-)
