Live Beautifully Congratulations Card

While I love making more complicated watercolor versions of this month's Live Beautifully rose images, I also wanted to see what I could do just stamping a single rose, fast and simple.
Inspired by the Navy in this week's Fusion Card Challenge, this little Congrats card comes together in no time at all. I simply inked the rose in blue ink and stamped it repeatedly all over the card front. each time I stamped the rose I also stamped off the second and third generation lighter images in the spaces between the roses. 
I love how that extra pouncing of the stamp image fills in the spaces of the background without adding more images to compete with the roses. I layered my sentiment strip over some navy organdy ribbon from my stash, and topped it off with a couple of sparkly gems. I'm linking this card up to the Heart 2 Heart Coming Up Roses Challenge. Check out the Live Beautifully Collection before it sells out!

You are always so great at thinking outside the box and your blue roses are the perfect example of that! They make a stunning card and the shadow stamping adds so much depth. Great job and thanks for sharing and inspiring everyone at Heart 2 Heart!
