A rose card for Rose (an oldie but goodie ... Roses in Winter stamp set)

For work I made a retirement card for a lovely lady by the name of Rose.  She’s retiring with over 20 years of service for the VA.  She’s also very crafty and loves the art of stamping.  So I had to make her card extra special.  Since I didn’t have the current SU rose set Stippled Blossoms (which I’d will be ordering) I used an oldie but goodie SU stamp set Roses in Winter.  This card was CASed and INspired with slight changes with the stamp set, ribbon and sentiment whose original can be seen by this talented artist:  Cindy Beach over at Stamps, Paper and Ink.
I stamped the rose image with the same colors as Cindy used first with Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral (stamped off) with the overlay image and then again with Calypso Coral with the 2nd overlay image.  I’m happy how it turned out so I’d just had to share.

Wildflower Meadow CARD, cQc#197

Good Morning!  This card was CASed and Inspired by Lynn over at LW Designs with slight changes in colors, ribbon and such.   Lynn's card is so soft and very pretty. 
I stamped the image with Whisper White Craft ink (let dry or use a heat tool) then colored it in using a blender pen with classic ink pads.  Lynn used a aqua painter.  If anyone knows the name of this technique please let me know. 

Check out the colour Q challenge #197 The Royal Court Design Team with their cool
color palette: Tangerine Tango, Gumball Green and Summer Sun.  I've been told you can use any neutral color so I added Crumb Cake!
