Lovely As A Rose

Hi Everyone!

I want to share a card I made recently with a new stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle called Rose Bouquet. I just love roses and wish I could grow them well, but I do not have the patience to baby them! I embossed the image with Silver Detail embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle and colored in the rose. A TIP to remember is to use an anti static bag over your card stock to keep the embossing powder from sticking to other places besides the image. I used an embossing folder to make the frame for the rose. The corners were punched and bling and ribbon was added for accent. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day.
