Rose Garden

Creative stamping magazine issue 17 has a gorgeous set of 16 rose garden themed stamps as the free gift , the mag only costs 5.99 so this is an excellent buy , they stamp nicely too. I coloured the image with pro and flex makers. The die cut is a sizzix fancy oval . The pb and the insert are from a first edition 6x6 pad called family ties. I used 2 organza ribbons in grey and lemon down the sides and made a double bow with the lemon colour using the Jak Heath technic

. I stamped the sentiment from the set , what a lovely saying . onto a heart punch from wood ware and inked the edges. A touch of stickles in yellow  on the roses and some liquid pearls on the hat ribbon trim for the final flourish .

challenges entered :
