Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Birthday Card for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to our weekly hop. Today we have a sketch challenge.

Here is what I created using the Cottage Rose Stamp Set, coordinating Cottage Flowers Dies, Organic Beauty Dies and Sending Dies...

My card base is Pacific Point Cardstock. The lattice die is cut out of Distressed Gold 12" x 12" Specialty Paper with a die from the Organic Beauty Dies . 

I stamped the rose from the Cottage Rose Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on a piece of Basic White Cardstock. I cut it out with a die from the Cottage Flowers Dies. I colored the leaves with Light and Dark Old Olive Stampin' Blends, the center, and what I think is baby's breath, with Dark So Saffron Stampin' Blends.

I stamped the sentiment on scrap Basic White with MTB ink and cut it out with a die from the Sending Dies. I adhered it to a scrap of the Distressed Gold. I adhered the rose and lattice with liquid glue and the sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals. Lastly, I adhered three Pearl Basic Jewels.

For the inside...

I stamped the sentiment in Pacific Point Ink, the leaves in Old Olive Ink, stippled the Basic White panel with PP ink, punched the corners with the Very Best Trio Punch and adhered it to the base with liquid glue.
