Grandma

The color challenge from Curtain Call is so beautiful how could I not take part!  Love these colors and the inspiration picture.
For my card I used this tutorial for making paper roses, which thus fits the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - flowers.  I stamped the Damask Background (PTI) in white daisy ink.  The center panel is cuttlebugged.  I used my Think Pink Slice Design Cartridge to cut the leaves and the sentiment (which of course is available at Scrap-Mart).  This also fits the Cute Card Thursday challenge - dimensions as not only is the center panel on foam squares, the rose is lots of dimension!

Laurel, So you inked the cuttlebug template with pigment white daisy and ran the kraft cardstock through it?? The effect is just amazing! Maybe you're just referring to the swiss dots - In which case the base is beautifully stamped! I keep forgetting that you can apply ink with the embossing templates . . . so that's why I "leapt to that" conclusion!

Beautiful card!
