I pulled out an Outlines Rubber Stamp Co vase stamp that hasn't seen ink in ages and my fave rose images and dies from the Papertrey Ink set The Sweet Life to create another birthday card:
The vase was embossed in black on black cs. The roses were stamped with both Stampin' Up pretty in pink(for lightest shade) and melon mambo. Sentiment (from Papertrey Ink Delightful Dahlias Additions set) was black embossed on Stampin' Up melon mambo pp. Difficult to see in the pic but the black panel was embossed using a Stampin' Up/Sizzix Stylish Stripes embossing folder. After adding the Doodlebug Designs enamel dots I still thought it was lacking some "pizzaz" so I added a strip of black and white houndstooth pp underneath the sentiment banner.
Other Supplies Used: Papertrey ink white cs, Stampin' Up black cs, Spellbinders circle Nestie, MFT banner die
Thanks for all the encouraging comments!
