Sweet Floral Card

Howdy!  I needed to make a card for a Stampin' Up! customer, to simply say 'thank you'.  I wanted to use only Stampin' Up! supplies, so I went browsing the internet for some inspiration, and well . . .
I went to the Friday Mashup Challenge to see what they have this week, and well, look at this impistaional board:

these lovely ladies ask you to make a project using the triple layer technique, or floral, or both.
(I made the Friday Mashup Glamette list with this floral inspired card!  Yahoo!)
I really had a fabulous time with this weeks sketch over @ retro sketches.  So, I decided to play again.   (I received a retro shout out list with this floral card, using this sketch!  Yahoo!)
this week's sketch:

and here is what I made:

I really liked the cascading roses in the Friday Mashup inspiration photo.  So, I decided to create cascading roses for my corner embellishment.  I used the masking technique for the roses and leaves.
Recipe:  I used the pink pirouette card stock for the card base.  I used whisper white card stock as the main panel, and matted it on strawberry card stock.
I used the Stippled Blossoms stamp set to create the 2-step blossoms and leaves.  
To create the random dry embossed dots with the swiss dot embossing folder and a stylus.  I added a trio of bright pink sequins to the card front to add some sparkle.
For my sentiment rectangle, I stamped my sentiment from the Hello There stamp set, in baked brown sugar classic ink.  I matted this piece onto a scrap piece of brushed gold card stock.  I cut a scallop rectangle out of pink pirouette card stock and adhered it to the card front with foam tape.  I stamped the 'thank you' in basic black classic ink onto whisper white card stock.  Then cut it out with my scissors and adhered to the sentiment rectangle.
I tied a simple bow with gold bakers twine, and added it the side of the sentiment rectangle.

Thank you for stopping by!  I just realized that I used the same sentiment for the other card I submitted.  And I also did the same simple bow on the side of the sentiment rectangle.  {ugh}  oh well, I guess I really liked the sentiment and the bow {smile}
