Soft and creamy

This weeks challenge at JUGS was to use this photo for inspiration . I love these colours which remind me of soft creamy roses and summer - I wish!

We have snow AGAIN here this weekend. It's end of March for goodness sake!  I need to plant out my seeds LOL!

This was also entered into two challenges at Split Coast Stampers.

This week I downloaded some lovely soft prints from Liz Armstrong' s Pink Petticoat - the blog of Simply Creative - so decided to use them today. I don't often use paper on my cards but these are really soft and there are some gorgeous new colours. What I particularly like about these prints is that you can download the patterns with either a cream or a white background.

I stamped some cream card with Anita's Roses using Ranger's Distress Ink - Tea Dye and layered with Sweet Apricot solid shade. I used  Little Polka Dots as another layer over the Totally Tangerine base card. The sentiment was stamped on a banner. A ScorPal was used to add diagonal score lines to one corner and three gems to finish.

I hope you like this card; I certainly enjoyed making it today.

Have a great week!
