Go Confidently in the direction of your dreams.......

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are doing well! We have been in a major cold front here and I feel like my fingers and toes are constantly frozen - that and keeping the kids busy and out of mischief on snow days have created some crazy days around here! I am always so happy to escape for awhile to my craft corner and I couldn't wait to make this card using the stamp set that Taylor beautifully illustrated called New Beginnings which was released earlier this month from Taylored Expressions!

I love the roses in this stamp set - love them - loooooove them - lOVe them! Did I mention that I love them? :) I love that the open roses and the solid roses that you can mix and match. For this card - I stamped the open roses with white ink onto black cardstock and then stamped a solid rose in Ladybug Red ink from Memento. I adore the frame that is in this stamp - and inked it up and then added a little chunky glitter to it:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: from stash
Stamps New Beginnings from Taylored Expressions
Ink: Ladybug Red ink, Stazon white, 
Accessories: chunky glitter, bling, Apple with White dots ribbon, Leafy Branch Die , liquid pearls, and white gel pen

I stamped one of my favorite sentiments from Thoreau with white ink and then popped it up onto the center of the frame. I popped up the roses and then added some leaves with the Leafy Branch Die from TE and finished it off with some of the Apple with White dots ribbon.

I love how this turned out - it was so much fun to stamp the roses and create a little black and white DP :)  It's been so much fun to create cards with this set - there are so many possibilities!

Hope your day is full of all kinds of fun stuff  - thanks so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
