Colour Dare 257 - Smiling Roses Card

I love the colour challenge this week at Colour Dare - soft and feminine colours - at least, that's the way I interpreted this colour scheme. Others may have thought completely opposite. 

I based my card on one that I found recently on Pinterest with part of the oval cut out and the sentiment stamped behind a raised card front and then surrounded with flowers. I chose to use the new stamp set, Beautiful You, for the flowers. The sentiment is from one of the stamps that comes with the Artistry Cricut Collection - Perfect Picture. I added the faux stitching around the edge using a piercing tool.

  3. Love how the partial oval sentiment is cut from the side and carrying the stitching around it. Love all the layering on your floral arrangement. Beautiful card.
