Roses Are the Challenge This Week

This week the challenge at Sweet Stamps is : 

Each week we choose a winner from the challenge to win a $20 Shopping Spree at Sweet Stamps towards your purchase of rubber stamps. You can use any stamp for your card but if you use a Sweet stamp you receive two entries in the challenge.
Remember, you can only enter the challenge one time, those using Sweet Stamps images will get an extra drawing in the challenge. Please limit the amount of challenges to 10 (including ours)  You must link back to us in your blog post.
I used the following supplies:

4" x 5" Acrylic Block 

Foam Dots

Mini Glue Dots 

This design changed so many times I can't begin to tell you. I ended up with an easel card using many layers.
The images were all stamped on Parchment Paper and embossed. Creative Inspirations Paint was used to "paint" the flowers.
 There are layers under the vellum and also a couple layers on the outside.
I even used the cut out shape to decorate the card base. Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

 Wanted to share some of the details, it is so hard to show the beautiful design and color. This is what the card looks like flat and ready to be mailed.
Challenges I am entering:
Make It Monday-anything goes
Paper pretties-use flowers
Stamps R Us Challenge Blog-anything goes

So won't you play along with our challenge this week? We always enjoy seeing the new faces and designs and you could be a winner.
