Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #8

Here is my card for Beate's Sketch Challenge. I'm loving the new In Colors, so I used them again for this card. It's a 5 1/4 inch square card with Purely Pomegranate as the base. I stamped Fine Lace as a background in the same colour ink. I like the Certainly Celery and Apricot Appeal as complementary colours. I stamped the leaves from Wild Rose in Wild Wasabi ink all over the strip of celery CS. I stamped the rose in pomegranate ink on apricot CS (the solid image was stamped off once so it would be lighter). Then I cut it out and adhered some leaves to it. I adhered it to the card with dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped on celery designer paper from the Palette of Prints in pomegranate ink, then punched out with the round tab punch.
