Karita's DT week - SS184

Hello everyone, it's the first Saturday of December (where has the last year gone?) so it must be my week off at Sketch Saturday where I get to play with a sketch designed by one of the talented Saturday Girls.
This month, the lovely Karita will be our host.

Karita's sketch challenge is sponsored this week by Love to Stamp the home of the Little Darlings rubber stamp line. You can also find a large selection of paper, tools, sentiment stamps and embellishments.

Here is my card...

and a close up of the roses...

The Kanban roses stamp was stamped using Stazon and then coloured with SU inks. I stamped and coloured more of the same so that I could layer the design.
The pink and green patterned papers are called 'bird song' and are by First Edition. Some of the sheets in the pack are embossed as you can see with the spotty pink paper.
The white scalloped border was made using a Xcut border punch.

I'm really pleased with this card, I think it's really pretty and also think that the colours go beautifully with the kraft cardstock.

To see more beautiful cards made by the Saturdays, please go visit the challenge blog or their individual blogs, the links are in the sidebar >>>

We are joined this month by Hanne, who will be our guest designer throughout December. Her card is stunning and i'm looking forward to seeing more from her :)

Thank you for stopping by, hope you have a great weekend xx
