Enjoy the Roses

Love My Tapes is a company that sells tapes with flair!!  Their latest product is Fabric Tape - wow, what a great idea!!  They have started challenges on their blog and the winner is lucky enough to get some of their products.  Well, I love the idea of tape but don't yet own any....so I decided to enter their contest and try to see if I can win some!!  Besides, the inspiraiton photo was just too good to ignore!! 

Here is the card I made.  Obviously, the inspriation came from the colors, the doily under the cup, and the roses, oh and the background design!  The roses were heat embossed with black, spritzed with LOTS of water and then drops of pink ink were added.  A great effect!!

Stamps - In Bloom, Background Basics: Retro; Mixed Messages (all Papertrey Ink).

Have you joined in on the doily bandwagon yet??  They are certainly pretty little things to play with adding a lot of frill easily.

Thanks for dropping in for a peek.  Share your thoughts!!
