Thinking of You Roses

It's going to be a very short post here tonight.  It's fast approaching my bedtime but I just had to make a card before the day was done.  The Wild Rose is Iowa's state flower and the Wild Roses stamp set from Flourishes is one of my favorites.  While the wild roses here are usually pink, to follow along with the color challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches, these are Peekaboo Peach.  Really, they are. And, Oops!, I snuck in just a wee bit of Mint Macaron for the leaves as the Dapper Denim just would have been wrong.  

Stamp Sets:  Wetlands - sentiment (Stampin' Up!), Wild Roses (Flourishes); Inks:  Dapper Denim, Mint Macaron, Peekaboo Peach (all Stampin' Up!); Cardstock:  Dapper Denim, Whisper White (both Stampin' Up!); Other:  Copper Embossing Powder

The colors I used are from the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge. They were great colors to use and worked well together.  I colored the roses with a Peekaboo Peach Stampin' Write Marker but the color was much darker than what I get when I stamp using the ink pad.  And, I heat embossed the roses using Copper Embossing Powder but that never photographs well for me.  The card in real like has a pretty shimmer to it from the copper.
