Wild Rose Thank You Card

I got online to post a bookmark card we made in stamp club this month, but I decided to postpone that until tomorrow after finding a new color challenge on KWerner's blog. My Wild Rose stamp set was already out, so I stamped something new for tonight. The pattern on the dress reminded me of the new Bella Rose paper, but the colors for her challenge were Rose Red, Regal Rose, Sage Shadow, and Whisper White, so I had to stamp my own rose pattern.

Supplies: Wild Rose stamp set, All Holidays stamp set, Rose Red ink & cardstock, Regal Rose ink & grosgrain ribbon, Shadow Shadow ink & cardstock, Rose Red Prints designer series paper, sticky strip, Versamark ink pad, Winter White embossing powder, heat tool, stamp-a-ma-jig

The finished card measures 5" x 5".

I liked the pleating in the inspiration dress, so I tried the ruffled ribbon again. I started with a piece of sticky strip across the card between the roses and the Rose Red paper. I carefully laid the ribbon, using the paper piercing tool to gather it in tiny waves. It was tedious, but I like the way it turned out.

The inspiration piece reminds me of the style dress I just wore at my sisters wedding. The pattern reminds me of the dress I wore for my Wedding Lunched.. So funny.
