Single Rose

I was the proud recipient of some blog candy from Gina K designer, Melanie Muenchinger. I won the Stately Flowers 6 set. All her floral sets are awesome! I especially love the rose.

I used some dp I had on hand. I have been collecting dp for 15 years now and have tons. I used my new Spellbinders Card Creator Matting Basics A. The rhinestones are actually a blush pink, not white like they look.

I am using this card for the challenge at Cute Card Thursday and also
for the challenge at Word Art Wednesday.
as well as the challenge on where you are suppose to use the colors of pink, white and sage green on your card.
