Pink Rose

Today I'm back to sponging.  I just bought the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set and thought the large rose from the set would look really nice if it was sponged with different pinks.  Hope you like.
"Pink Rose"

Paper:  Regal Rose, Whisper White (SU!)

Using Versamark ink, I stamped the rose onto the 3 1/8" x 2 7/8" piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I quickly poured white embossing powder over the image and then removed any excess powder.  I used the heat tool to melt the embossing powder.

Using my Colorbox stylus (small sponge with handle), I added Kiwi Kiss and Old Olive to the cardstock around the outside of the embossed image.  I then sponged Pink Pirouette over the whole rose.  I added Pretty in Pink on top of the Pink Pirouette, covering most of the rose, but leaving the outside leaves lighter.  I finished by sponging Regal Rose to the middle of the rose.  I attached the main image onto a frame of Regal Rose cardstock using sticky strips.

I embossed the large piece of Whisper White with the Square Lattice embossing folder in my Big Shot.  I attached it to the card base using sticky strips.  I then adhered the 3/8" satin ribbon to the 1/2" wide piece of Regal Rose and used sticky strips to attach it approx. 3/4" from the bottom of the card.  The sentiment was centered on top of the ribbon, popping it up with dimensionals.

I adhered the framed main image onto the card, popping it up with dimensionals to add depth.
