The Wonders of Nature Bring Joy to the Soul

Today's Inspiration Challenge on Split Coast was the web site Espe. I looked at all the pretty wallets there and was inspired by the pink wallet with roses .

I used one long stem rose stamp from Rubbernecker Stamps for this card. I stamped the rose part several times on red card stock and then cut them out. On some, I only cut out the center bud of the rose. Isn't this a gorgeous rose - I love the detail on the stamping - I can just smell their lovely scent!

Then I stamped the leaves and stem on Bazzill Green card stock and cut out diffferent pieces of it attaching them to the backs of the roses. They are all popped up on foam dimensionals .

The sentiment is from a set called Petite Word Set. I only inked up the bottom half of this particular sentiment as that was all I wanted for this card. My background is the Diamonds in the Rough Cuttlebug folder.

Well - I stayed up so late to do this challenge on Friday night - it is now early Sat morning and it's only 7 degrees outside! I'm so thankful that I'm in my cozy warm home!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
