Bordering on Romance

Happy New Year, a little late! I hope that all of you have had a good start to 2012! Last weekend I participated in the DIVA sketch challenge and was able to upload my card to the DIVA blog, but I could not get into my blogger account to do a post here. (My son finally helped me figure out the problem.) This week's card combines two challenges, DIVASC170, which looks like this,

and the Create with Connie and Mary color challenge, CCMC183.

Here's my card:

Here are the supplies I used.
Paper: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Twitterpated DSP
Stamps: Bordering on Romance
Ink: Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, Black Staz-On
Accessories: Adorning Accents Edgelits Die, Blushing Bride 3/8" pleated satin ribbon, Stampin' dimensionals, aquapainters

I stamped and colored several of the main flower image so that I could cut some extra leaves and flowers to layer and pop up to give added dimension to the card. I really like how it turned out.

I'm in love with so many of the items in the Occasions mini catalog! I guess you can tell from the number of new products I used. If you have a minute, I'd love to hear what you think of my card. I read all of your comments, and it they really mean a lot to me.

Thanks for stopping by!
