Flourishes Friday Focus

TGIF!  This week Cindy has chosen this lovely photo for our inspiration:

DT Inspiration Challenge June 25 2010

I used cream, kraft, chocolate, and a touch of pink to create this…

DPK_FF_June25

I used the roses from A Year In Flowers 2 to stamp on the background in Distress Ink in Antique Linen and again on cream card stock which I colored with Prismacolor pencils and oms, cut out and popped up.  The sentiment is from Life Lines and it’s stamped on Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock.  Both the sentiment and the mat were cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities.  While keeping the oval die in place I sponged with more Distress Ink in Antique Linen around the edges.  I finished it off with a piece of luxurious May Arts silk ribbon.

Visit each of the wonderful ladies below for more inspiration!  Have a wonderful weekend!

    I can hardly believe how gorgeous all these inspired cards are. Maybe we should do this more often! Your card is one step beyond gorgeous, Danielle. What a wonderful idea to use the rose stamp in the background. Oh, my! That's just beautiful! And the pretty pink roses cut out and used with this quote -- exquisite!
