Both cards here feature the Rose Trio #3 set. I love the "budding" image, so it seemed natural to pair it with the sentiment from the Rose Trio #2 set. I didn't use the solid rose image with this one, but started with the 2nd layer - I inked it with Rose Romance and Mellow Moss inks (SU), then stamped off once on scratch paper. I then did the final layer with the ink at full strength. I cut the rose out using a Sizzix die, and then layered it with a scalloped rectangle (cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities). I did sketch a little border with a fine tip black pen just to break up the pink, and then tied on a bit of American Crafts ribbon to pull the colors together.
To Life! I added a little acrylic dot on each corner; these are the little thingamabobbers that Michael's in their floral section earlier this year, and I believe many people are now calling them skittles. They're a bit larger than Dew Drops, and nearly all of them have bubbles in them so I personally don't think that they're quite as elegant, but I think they work well here.
I have a few cupcake cards to share tomorrow - I figured it was better for me to create them from ink rather than actually eating them :)
