Here is the sketch:
After I finished the card; I felt it needed a little more; hence the ribbon bow. In your honest opinion; should I leave the bow on or take it off?
Card stock is from my stash. The design paper is from Wild Rose Studios - 6 x 6 Paper Pad - Butterfly Garden. The sentiment is from Stamps of Life - Ticket to Stamp and was stamped using Versafine Majestic Blue. The roses were made using My Favourite Things Die - Mini Rolled Roses. I added cream coloured flat back pearls and the leaves made using a Martha Stewart punch - Rose Leaf which I also embossed using an embossing tool. The pink satin ribbon is also from my stash.
All in all, I am very pleased with how this card turned out. The most difficult part was making those roses. The very first rose I made when I got the die turned out perfect but it is red, so couldn't very well use it on this card. This card will soon be mailed to a very special lady who is a very caring, loving and warm person and in her own small way is making a difference in the world. Unfortunately, I cannot reveal her name here as she reads my blog. I'm sure she will be tickled pink when she receives this card.
Thanks for stopping by!
