Pink Roses



So for my second post today, I made a card for my mother-in-laws upcoming 80th birthday.  The challenge this week at Birthday Sundaes was a color challenge, to make a birthday card using pink, green and white.  Well my scrap room is these 3 colors!!  Since I just got my Art Philosophy cartridge this week, I decided to try making some 3D flowers.   Here is a close up of the flowers.



 I have had such fun playing!!  The vase is a cut from Celebrate with Flourish, I just cut off some pieces!!  If you missed it the birthday wording is in the lower left corner, the stamo is from Papertry Ink "Mega Mixed Messages".  I added a little bling, some stickles and glimmer misted the flowers.  Oh Yeah, the pink flower in the middle was cut from white paper.  I inked the edges with SU Pretty in Pink and the applied glimmer mist.  The pink, green and white background paper is from Making Memories.   I also used a little bit of twine from My Craft Spot!!   I am also entering this in FCCB Challenge #74 – Birthday Bash
