Using my Washi Tapes...

For this card I was inspired by the sketch over at Try Stamping on Tuesday. I've printed this sketch, it's a keeper and I know I'll be using it again! I had planned to make it a male card, had sprinkled the background  paper with brown mist, added the striped DP and my washi tapes. Then I spotted the rose die cut amongst my pile of "ready to use items" and had a change of heart. I went with a design with a stemped sentiment as the focal point as I don't have any thank you cards left in my card pile. I added a circle die cut and some pearls, mounted the rose on foam. .

This card is for these challenges:
1) Try Stamping On Tuesday - #156 Sketch
2) A Creative Romance - Let's Get Sentimental
3) Pile It On - #7 Sentiment as the Focus
4) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
