ODBDSLC211 - Sketch Part 2

The Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs this week is the second week of our Sketch.  Join us here for all of the details.

Last week I made a masculine card and so I wanted some lace and flowers this time.  For the sketch, I chose the beautiful roses from the ODBD Smell the roses stamp set, I heat embossed and water colored the roses with Stampin Up pens and layered on Spellbinder dies. The ODBD designer paper from the Blushing Rose Collection went so perfectly with my card and I added my favorite lace from the ODBD Beautiful Borders die set in black to give a little pop. 

ODBD Stamps Used: Smell the Roses Stamp Set
ODBD Dies Used: Beautiful Borders Dies
ODBD Paper Used: Blushing Rose Collection

Other Supplies: Spellbinder dies, SU markers, water pen, foam tape, seam binding ribbon, pearl stickers.

Check out the blogs of my talented friends for more inspiration.
