The Shabby Tea Room, MFT Color Palette 1 & Simon Says Stamps {Paper Sweeties}

My two weeks off from work are officially at an end! Tomorrow I am back with my sweet class of kiddos! I have really missed them and I am looking forward to seeing them and hearing about their Christmas adventures.

We have a brand new challenge up at The Shabby Tea Room

Use ROSES on your project!!! 
Oh how I LOVE the pretty inspiration photo!

I went to work and decided to play with some papers in my stash! I am also playing along with a few different challenges!!! I was inspired to create a "love" themed card and I am using something "new" My Favorite Things "Rolled Roses Die"! Eeep! Love using them once I figured out how to roll the roses! 

So I am linking up to the current Simon Says Stamp Challenge to use something NEW!

 {Supplies Used}
Stamps: Paper Sweeties-Beautiful
Inks: Basic Gray & Black
Papers: MME, DSP Stash, Pink, White
Extras: Pink Pearls, Martha Stewart Doilies, Leaf Flourish Die, Rolled Roses Die (MFT)

I am also playing along with My Favorite Things Color Palette Challenge.



  1. You are killing me with that leaf flourish, Lesley! Have wanted it forever. Wonderful layering of the focal sentiment and lovely roses.

  2. What a lovely card! I have a couple of the rolled roses die cuts and can't seem to get a decent rose! How do you roll yours to look so nice??

  3. The added blooms and flourish are such pretty touches to your fabulous card!

  4. Beautiful is the perfect word for this card, Lesley! Love the soft, feminine colors and rolled roses!

  5. This is gorgeous Lesley. Love the rolled roses and the leafy flourish.

  6. Gorgeous card, Lesley!! I have that rose die too but can't seem to get them tight like you - got any tips!?!
