A Christmas Rose



I created this card for a dear friend using the colors from today's Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge 248.

I stamped the rose first and covered it with a mask. I then added the leaves and masked them. Next came the pine boughs and last the pinecones.

Stamps: Hearts & Roses, Multi Step Build a Garland, and Words of Comfort and Joy by Kitchen Sink Stamps

Papers: Barely Banana, Always Artichoke, and Rich Razzleberry by Stampin' Up

Inks:
   Rose: 4-SU Rich Razzleberry, 3- SU Rich Razzleberry stamped off once, 2-SU Perfect Plum, 1-Memento Sweet Plum stamped off once

  Leaves: 1-SU Always Artichoke stamped off once, 2-SU Always Artichoke

  Pine: 2-SU Wild Wasabi, 3-SU Always Articoke

  Pine Cones: 4-Memento Dark Cocoa, 3-Memento Dark Cocoa stamped off once, 2-Memento Potter's Clay, 1-Memento Potter's Clay stamped off once

  Sentiment: SU Rich Razzleberry

Tools: EK Success Punch
