Sweet Stamps Challenge #3 FLOWERS - Stamps or Embellishments

The challenge this week at Sweet Stamps Blog is to use
                              FLOWERS
Stamps or Flower Embellishments!! Join us in this fun challenge.

Lovely Roses #7070H was my choice for this challenge. They are placed in the 'Sweet' Basket #3000L.  The images were stamped with Momento Black Ink on White Cryogen paper and colored with Copics. I cut the images out. This allowed the ribbon to be wrapped around the basket handle. The Lovely Roses were pop dotted and I added extra leaves around the basket edges. The leaves in the basket and at the corners are the Large Rose Leaves #7015C.  I air brushed Cheery Lynn's Coved Rectangle, matted it on the darker purple then put the images in place.  The greeting With Sympathy #975C.  I used Cheery Lynn's Dotted Swiss Plate on the lighter purple layer. The DP is Chatterbox from my stash!

The finished size is 6.25" x 4.50".

Roses BV01, BV02, C1

I about had a heart attack when I saw Sweet Stamps name, thinking I missed a post or something! Then looked at the date and realized, whew, that was last Tuesday! Thanks for the sweet compliments on the CLD blog! I do love those Veggies, I keep thinking of other things to do with them:) I LOVE this card you did for Sweet Stamps! It looks like Art for Framing!
