Stamps: Uniko Studio - Beautiful Blooms II, Simply Said Birthday, Background Builders Round in Circles
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Cherry Cobbler, Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Lost Lagoon
Dies: Waltzingmouse - Stitched Tag, Folding Tag
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Lost Lagoon; Cuttlebug EF - D'Vine Swirls; Ribbons

The inspiration for this card comes Kylie's card at Time Out Challenges - TOC#24.  The challenge is to CASE Kylie's card, putting our own twist on the design.  I've almost exactly to the layout of Kylie's card, but changed up the embossed pattern, added a stamped border, changed the shape of the tag and used the wonderful flowers from Beautiful Blooms II on the tag.

The little roses were created in three stages - first I stamped the outline in a dark pink, then the solid fill in pale pink and finally the shadow detail in very dark pink.  The stamps are really easy to line up.  Once stamped I cut them out.  The leaves were also stamped on scrap card and cut out.  I die cut the tag, added the cute little star at the hole and then adhered the roses and leaves.  I used dimensional gel for the bottom rose and leaves.  I finished the tag with some ribbon from my stash and adhered the complete tag with dimensional tape.  On the inside I stamped a couple more roses, masked them off and added some leaves.  I finished with a simple greeting.

I think these stamps are just lovely.  While I've used them here as a three step rose, the outline could be stamped and coloured with Copics, pencils or paint, the solid image could be embossed and the little shadow stamp makes a super flower on its own!  Oh yes, the leaves could make a pretty daisy type flower too!
