Fragrant Rose...

Hi everyone!

Today I would like to share my Sketch Saturday #156 make with you. We are being sponsored by Bunny Zoe Crafts this week and here is the fabby sketch for you to follow:

I used one of the beautiful stamps from the Whimsy Stamps Fragrant Rose stamp set for my card.  You can buy this stamp set (which comes already mounted on cling) for $12.00 straight from the Whimsy Store HERE or if you are in the UK/Europe you can buy it from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie HERE.  

I paired it with some gorgeous Crate Paper 'Portrait' 6x6 paper (available to buy HERE from Quixotic Paperie).  I absolutely adore this paper pad, and I think I need to get another purely so that I can squirrel it away for the future, LOL!

Here is the full recipe:

STAMP: Whimsy Stamps Fragrant Rose
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad ~ Distress Ink Pad 'Vintage Photo'
COPICS: E43 E41 E40 ~ G21 YG63 YG67 ~ Y21 YR23 Y35 E35 ~ R20 R22 R27
PAPER: Crate Paper 'Portrait' 6x6 paper pad
CARD: SU Kraft
TOOLS: Martha Stewart border punch 'Doily Lace' ~ Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 4 ~ Spellbinders Parisian Accents dies
EMBELLIES: Cream ribbon ~ 5mm Cappuccino flatback pearls ~ 4mm Cappuccino flatback pearls
