A Single Rose For You



I'm here to play in the Inspired by Stamping challenge again this week. I love this challenge and have won some wonderful items there. Win or not, it's just fun to play. IBSIC#53 has beautiful colors to use:

 
I love these pretty colors. My papers are Stampin'Up! Rose Red and Baja Breeze along with PTI Kraft and white. I'm afraid my Rose Red turned a bit more red in the photo than the real thing.
 
I used Copic markers: R81-Rose Pink, R85-Rose Red, E87-Fig, and E84-Khaki.
 
The patio chair seats reminded me of circles so that explains why I have them on my card. I used a Fiskars 1/2" circle punch.
 
Stamps used: Inspired by Stamping Vintage Backgrounds for the circles and Beautiful Iris for the sentiment. The rose is from the set, Elegant Flowers. I love that set because it has a lot of images for coloring....something I really like to do. The last post I did was using a rose in that same set. I love it!
 
That's it for me through the weekend. Hope yours is great.

I love those colours, too, and those blue circles are a fun addition. Even the print reminds me of bistro sets. I haven't had a lot of time to craft lately, but this looks like a fun challenge...
Have a wonderful weekend!

You've been so lucky, winning so many things from IBS, Benzi. :-) Such happy stuff!

Love this cool CAS layout, and the vibrant pink rose. Hoping my own pink roses will bloom this year. Moved them to a different location last year and the whole plant went into shock. It was basically just a big stalk with thorns on it!
