*I love my Roses* Set......

Happy TGIF everyone!!!

It's been pretty busy around here....my girls are finally back in school and I had a chance to straighten up my house again!!!

I haven't had much time to stamp the last couple days....but here is a card I squeezed in yesterday!!!
I received my new *I love Roses* Set from Flourishes - it was mailed so fast that I feel so guilty that I have not inked it up - LOL! !!

Remember the Flourishes Blog Candy I was able to give away thanks to Flourishes??? Well Holly B. was the lucky Winner and her favorite Set from Flourishes is this *I love Roses* Set.....since it was so close to Christmas I surprised Holly with this particular Set as a Bonus from my home to hers.....I also promised that I would show you all some samples!!! Here is my first one!!!

I started out with a Whisper White base and added the yummy new Papertrey Ink *Raspberry Fizz* CS. The RF CS was embossed with the Cuddlebug folder *Leafy Branch* and raised it up with Stampin Dimensionals.

The blooms were colored in *Raspberry Fizz* and the petals in *Always Artichoke* Ink onto Watercolor CS . Then I used my Aqua Painter to color the inside of the image. Next I tore the CS around the image and layered it onto *White Mulberry Paper*. This panel was also raised with Stampin Dimensionals. My next step was to add the *Styled Silver Label Holder* - the sentiment inside is from the same Set and it was inked in Basic Black and punched out with the small *Oval Punch*. I attached the Label Holder with the Raspberry Fizz Satin Ribbon.

I felt like something was missing....so I started piercing right below the sentiment and below the image panel. At last I added some *Angel* Shimmerz that my bud Denise has surprised me with for Christmas!!! Thanks Denise - I love my Shimmerz!!!! If you like.... click on the little photo to see the sparkels close up!!!

What do you think - do you like it???~TFL~
