Sketch challenge 212

Well, I have had an eventful couple of days here. On Monday night I turned my ankle outside and ended up severely spraining my ankle. We were not sure if I broke it or not but it has improved a bit today so I am pretty sure now that it is not broken but boy has it turned some interesting colors. So, I managed to hobble and crawl downstairs to make a card today. I got the inspiration for this card from the roses that are open on my table right now which my dh got for me a couple days ago.

I watercolored my image using my reinkers and an aquapainter which was also the belli challenge on my friend Chris Dickinson's blog this week. It is quite fitting to use her challenge too because she is the illustrator of this gorgeous new stamp set called Love Blooms from Sweet N Sassy stamps. Oh and can I just mention that this stamp set and EVERY stamp set is on sale for 20% off through the end of January. I popped up the roses with foam dots, added stickles for some sparkle, and added pearls to the scallops.

stamps- Love Blooms from Sweet N Sassy stamps
CS- pink pirouette, watercolor, white, pomegranite
accessories- reinkers, aquapainter, stickles, stitched ribbon, silver hardware, silver pearls, swiss dots cb folder, circle nesties, corner rounder punch
