Is turquoise classy?

Hello there!  I'm on a roll today!  LOL!  This will be the last post of the day!  I'm already tired!  This darn cold!  I can't wait to be back to normal!

Anyway, Melissa Phillips has started a new inspiration challenge each week on her blog, and I FINALLY had some time to participate!  YEAY!!!!  And I'm so glad that I did it today because the color that I saw was turquoise!  I don't know if that's just the way it came across on my computer, but, I took it and ran w/ it!  And I gave myself a challenge too!  I have been wanting to try to make white roses.  Well, I think I may be on to something here!  I am SO excited about how this rose came out!  What do you think?????

This card is also based on a layout for Card Patterns this week!  Sketch 51!  I can't believe they're up to 51 already!!!!  Amazing how time flies!  Of course, I couldn't go w/ the exact sketch, I had to change it up a bit.  I really wanted to do something w/ sewing, based on the fabric in the picture on Melissa's blog.  So, I sewed each bead on.  It really didn't take too long!  I'm getting pretty handy w/ a needle!  Don't tell my husband though!  He'll start making me sew all kinds of stuff!  He already tried making me make new pillows w/ the new sewing machine I got for Christmas!  I just laughed at him!  Yeah right, like I'm going to work w/ actual fabric!  LMBO!  Ok, back on track now! 

Anyway, to make the rose, I only used two colors: Versamagic Wheat & Memento Desert Sand.  The recipe goes like this:  3: Desert Sand, 2: Wheat, 1: Wheat, 4: Desert Sand.  And I had a hard time getting it straight and lined up because these are very light colors, and my stamps are colored from their usage!  But, I got it pretty good this time!  The leaves are: 3: Versamagic Spanish Olive, 2: Memento Bamboo Leaves, 1: Bamboo Leaves stamped off.

And there you have it!

Have a STAMPTASTIC day!!!
