Tea Roses

Well, it's Tuesday! we made it through Monday:) WooHoo!
My card for today took four different challenge ideas and inspirations to complete..I titled it Tea Roses, because a Rose takes time and effort to grow and cultivate just as this card has:)
..and there are a few roses on it as well:)

 Ideas were swirling in my head after seeing

Teacups, Butterflies, Soft colors

Next was the 
I only have a few Essentials By Ellen dies as well  as Pretty Pink Posh Dies and Sequins
Limited supplies= narrow options
Then I came across this BEAUTY of a card on IG from Hussena 
and find she is Guest Designing for a Challenge new to me.
Now I'm getting somewhere!  I chose the middle three going across
And Finally, This Post from Michele Ferguson pops up in my Feedly.
She happens to be week's the Muse at The Muse Card Challenge #156.
Michele encourages us to make THANK YOU cards in ANY style this week.
Super, I'll make it a thank you as well as Friendship:)
And there you go! Four Challenges, 
Four Ideas to make a card I'm happy with in the end:)
Yes, It's a shaker:)
How I made this:
  • I cut several roses in white cardstock using Wild Garden from Essentials by Ellen
  • adhered them onto a clear piece of acetate paper, 
  • cut it down to 4x4 so it would layer under the PPP Square Scallop die.
  • added a BOW from Crinkle ribbon to create the allusion of a butterfly
  • Cut and sponged some color on a teacup from PTI and a tiny tag.
  • Embossed in WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Pale EP
  • Dangled these from a clip pin embossed in the same EP as above.
  • Placed my PPP Sweat Pea sequin mix on the cardbase PP 
  • Carefulyl layered the scallop frame over them with foam tape.
  • Die cut THANK YOU, embossed it in CLEAR adhered to base.

Fun Fun Fun!

Saw your card on the Mix it Up challenge and had to come over and tell you how beautiful it is!! Glad I had a chance to see it up close and read your process. It's inspiring. I didn't know you could emboss a metal clip like that! (a minor detail in your card I know, but something new to me!)
