A Simple Rose

Hi blogging friends,

Several years ago Memory Box created some exclusive stamp sets with matching dies for Simple Pleasures in Colorado Springs.  I was very fortunate to be able to purchase some of them.  So for Valentine's Day I wanted to share with you the Simple Rose.

The card base is Natural White Linen layered with Pretty in Pink and a piece of Tresor paper from Scrapbook Graphics.  The edges were distressed and sponged with ColorBox Chalk Creamy Brown.  I used the Simple Rose die to cut a piece of Very Vanilla paper.  The image was then stamped in StazOn Timber Brown ink and colored with Prismacolor pencils.

Amour was stamped in brown on Tresor paper and layered onto a piece of Pretty in Pink.  Both were cut from Spellbinders Labels Four dies.  Using my Bow-Easy I created a tiny pink bow from May Arts silk ribbon for the stem.

Since Valentine's Day is all about lace and frills I popped up the rose and amour over a 4" doily.  Vintage winter white seam binding with a flat back cream pearl accent the corner.

The inside sentiment was stamped in Regal Rose and embossed with clear embossing powder.

I hope your week is off to a great start!  Thank you for dropping by to visit.  I always love to see you!
