I created this card for yesterday’s Free 4 All Challenge. Jeanne asked us to created something with a blue flower. I love this rose image from JustRite Stampers new With Sympathy stamp set and thought they would look good in blue.

The image was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of My Mind’s Eye Be Amazing patterned paper. The image was cut out with a  Classic Square Nestabilities die and the Out of the Box technique and colored with  Copic Markers (B0000, B91, B95, G20, G21, G24, G28. YR30).  One more rose bud and a leave branch were stamped on a scrap piece of the same paper, colored and cut out.

The square was sponged with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress ink and the edges were stitched. The square was adhered to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest of the  Fleur De Lis Square Nestabilities dies.

A piece of Be Amazing paper was cut and embossed with a  Grand Square Nestabilities. The edges were sanded and stitched and a piece of Light Blue Organdy Ribbon was tied around the paper vertically. The image layer was adhered over the paper and ribbon and a button was tied over the bow. The paper was adhered to the card base, Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die.

A sentiment from Fleur De Lis Label 20 stamp set was stamped on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die. The edges were sponged an a leave from the image was stamped in the center with Antique Linen ink. Fancy That! Border Bling on the top right of the image corner and three small Rhinestones under the sentiment finish off the card.

I made it into a birthday card so I can enter it into the current JustRite Stampers challenge Birthday Bash.

Have a great weekend and stop by tomorrow for a bit more candy! 🙂
Hugs and smiles
