I cut the rose from the front and backsides of a piece of ProvoCraft cardstock- the kind that is different colors on each side. That way, I knew they'd coordinate. The green, however, is just two different shades from my stash. :) I recently, on a trip to Michaels, discovered a 6x6 paper pad by Recollections called "The Bright and Basics Pad" for $4. I suspect that it might be from 12x12 pieces cut into quarters, but I don't care because the patterns are awesome and the price was right. That is what I used here for the background. I thought the blue went well with the kraft, and also made the rose pop out. I pulled some blue ribbon from my stash that is, if memory serves, from the dollar spot at Target.
I cut the off-white tag from Sweethearts and stamped the sentiment from Pink by Design's "Scripted Year" in a wine color. It is really clear in person, but for some reason I couldn't get a picture that reflected that. If I was only allowed to own one stamp set, this one would be it.
I plan to enter this card in the following challenges:
Bitten by the Bug 2- Rose
Simon Says Stamp and Show- Anything Goes
