LPSC65 - A Purple {Rose}

Hellooooooo Monday!! I am back today to share a project featuring the {Little Paper Shop}! I absolutely CAN NOT put down this gorgeous new set (just relased last week!!) called {Rose}. It is beautiful and elegant, perfect for all you girly girls and flower lovers out there (and coloring lovers too!). Speaking of color lovers, this week's challenge is of the color varitey - here is the swatch:

And here is my card with this pretty spring combo:

I decided to be a little different today by making a circle-shaped card! At the Cupcake Craft Challenge this week (CCC88) they want to see any cards that are NOT square. Thanks ladies!! How I have missed you, Cupcake girls, I haven't done as many challenges in the last few weeks but I am hoping to get back into the swing of things here. A Monday resolution! :)

A few card details for those who are interested. I stamped my largest rose twice in
Memento Tuxedo Black ink on PTI white cardstock and colored it with Copic markers. I cut out the middle of the second image and added it over the top with dimensionals. Stamped, colored and cut some leaves to go along with the main flower image. Cut out some cardstock for the background with my new Labels 12 Nesties (of course the circle is Nesties too - Classic Circles). Stamped the sentiment (also from the {Rose} set), added in a bunch of pearls along the side and it's almost done! As a finishing touch I covered the entire rose image with Smooch Illuminate pearlized topcoat ink. Love this stuff! And love the handy bottle & built-in applicator, no searching for a paintbrush is required!
