SWAA La Vie en Rose Blog Hop

Welcome to January's Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop.    Who are the Stampers with an Attitude?  It is the Close to My Heart team lead by my fabulous upline, Kimberly Moss. This month I am following  {Jen Patrick.}  

This month we are featuring the La Vie en Rose paper pack.  Our blog hop is a circular hop.  You just click on the link to the next blog at the bottom of this post and go visit the next blog.  If you get lost, I have all of the participating blogs listed at the bottom of my post.  Hope you enjoy seeing what our team has made for you.

La Vie en Rose literally means "Life in Pink".  A better translation might be "Life through rose-colored glasses".    And this paper has a whole lot of roses on one of its patterned papers.  Many people find the rose pattern to take over their artwork, but I decided to embrace it and use it as the main paper on my card.  I love all of the colors in this paper and I love the strong black and white patterns that accent and showcase this paper.

I found this adorable card pattern and was inspired to use it in my card.

And here is my card:

I stamped the February Stamp of the Month outline stamp in Cranberry Ink.  The shading stamp was inked in Pixie Ink and then I sponge daubed Pomegranate and Hollyhock ink onto the stamp in random places on the stamp and stamped into the smooth center of the embossed White Daisy panel.  I used our Circle Diffuser to leave the smooth center when I embossed the panel with our Damask Embossing folder.

I added some of our new Black and Gold ribbon and a heart from the  La Vie en Rose Complements. Oh and don't forget the scalloped Black Shimmer trim I added!

I want to thank you for visiting my blog.  The next very talented artist for you to visit on our blog hop is {Catherine Nowak}.
