Black and Blue

I adore this teal shabby rose flower from Prima. In fact, I designed my entire card around it! You can purchase these flowers in as little as groups of three or by the yard from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. See all of the shabby Prima flowers Sharon carries here.
My sentiment is from Scripture Collection 2 by Our Daily Bread designs. I stamped it using VersaMark ink and then embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder. After cutting with my Circle Nesties, I pierced around the edge of the circle an then attached it to my paper doily with Scor-Tape. My designer paper background is from the Prima Zephyr 6x6 collection. I added three kinds of textured trims: Black Chevron Twill, 1/8" Teal Velvet, and Lace. The leaves for my shabby rose are cut from a Prima paper flower from the Puccini A Collection. I added pearlized stick pins and black rhinestones for the small embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to stop by The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store to see all of the fabulous things that Sharon carries!
