White Roses

I made this card for this months challenge at Scrapbook Boutique.  The inspiration photo features white roses, bows and pearls with pale lavender.  I knew straight away what I wanted to do with this one!  I started with lavender cardstock and die cut one side with a SpellbindersA2 Bracket Borders One die, then I embossed the rest with Couture Creations Exotic EF and wrapped white satin ribbon around at the die cut end.  Next, I stamped the roses image from JustRite's With Sympathy clear stamp set, coloured it with copics, die cut it with a Spellbinders Floral Ovals die and added it to the card front with foam tape.  I tied a bow with the satin ribbon leaving long tails and adhered it with the tails twisted to the top left corner.  Finally, I added a Zva Creative pearl flourish.  I enjoyed this one and it has turned out just like the picture in my head - not always the case :)

Copic Colours used were:  BV000, C1, G40, G43.
