Rose Coloured Gratitude


Happy Friday!  Just gotta get through a 12 hour shift and then I can chill for the weekend.  Whoop whoop! For now I'm popping in with a card for the latest Muse challenge.  How gorgeous is Marion's card?  I love the ombre colours and the touch of pattern from the polka dots.  Originally I planned mine to be a one layer card but I wasn't having much luck with the inks I was using and ended up with a lot of blotchy images.  Instead, I stamped the vases onto coloured cardstock with the same coloured ink, fussy cut them and attached them with Pop Dots.  I used a straw image for the shelf because I thought the stripes added a bit of pattern in the same way the polka dots do on Marion's card.  This is definitely one of those cards that I could make in multiple colours and use for a gift set.  Maybe one of these days I'll actually get around to making all these sets I keep thinking about!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Regal Rose, Melon Mambo) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Vases, flower and stripes from Crystal Clear, Sentiment from Chit Chat) Paper Smooches
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Blushing Bride, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Melon Mambo) Stampin' Up

Love the bold vases and the black and white 'shelf'! Thanks for playing along with this week's Muse, Jen!

What's the fun in making multiples of the same card when there's an infinite number of NEW cards to make? That's sorta my thinking most of the time, anyway. This one is definitely worthy of reproduction, though. Very classy.

love this Muse card Jen. The lack and white strip is perfect for the added pattern. I am also always thinking of sets to make but never seem to get around to them!
