Rose's Garden

I think I could stamp with these Sarah Kay images every single day! I absolutely LOVE every one of them, and they are so much fun to color!

This one is called Rose's Garden . I stamped it on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.

The stamped image was colored with Tombow (water based) markers and a damp paint brush.

The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Eva paper collection.

The cardstock is Prismatics Pink light, and Intense Kiwi .

I used a Fiskars border punch on the bottom. I've had that one for a while, and it had kind of gotten lost among all my Martha Stewart border punches! LOL! I chose that one because it has such a similar shape to the ribbon I used.

The three strips of green ribbon are from WalMart. And the rhinestones in each of the four corners are Soft Pink Rhinestones by Kaiser Craft.

Thanks to each of you for stopping by my blog once again. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your kind words, and how much it means to me.

I hope you are all enjoying ringing in the New Year, and that it is a fabulous one!

What a beautiful (!!!) card you've created, Michelle! I love, love, love it! I especially love the background paper and the lace looks as though it was created for the paper! I think one Sarah Kay 'girl' is cuter than the next and I'm lucky enough to have 2 of them. Thank you so much for this card, Michelle!
