I Am Roses Color Challenge

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week, it's almost Friday!  Are you ready for our first I Am Roses Color Challenge?  It's happening right now.  Here's your chance to win some of the fabulous flowers that our Design Team uses.  Head on over to the I Am Roses Challenge Blog for more details and challenge rules.

I participated in the Color Challenge and here's what I created...
I used the Midnight Frost paper collection by Bo Bunny.  I ♥ this paper, it's so adorable.  My card measures 5.5"x5.5".  

I love the blue and white color scheme, it's so perfect for winter....and what goes better with winter than ice skating? 
I used my Nesties to create a base and then stamped up this adorable image using the "PI Ice Princess" stamp set by MFT.  I colored her up with my Copics, paper-pieced her dress, and added a touch of bling to her waistline.  
Here are the Copics I used:
Skin - E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair - E23, E25, Silver atyou Spica glitter pen
Skates - W1, C1, Colorless Blender, Silver atyou Spica glitter pen

Now for the pierre de resistance, the gorgeous IAR flowers.
I love the varying shades of blue in these flowers.  I created the stick pin using a gorgeous glass bead I had in my stash.  The fuzzy-edged trim is by Webster's Pages and the crystal beading is from Hobby Lobby.  Here are the IAR flowers I used on today's project:
White Semi-Open Rose Buds (sprayed with LSG Creme Brulee Cream)

Here's a peek at the inside...
I used the "Icicle Border Die-Namic" by MFT and sprayed it with Afternoon Denim Delight and Breakfast Club Blue by LSG.  I mixed the 2 colors to get a hint of blue and purple.  The sentiment also came from the "PI Ice Princess" stamp set by MFT.  I also added some more of that beaded trim from Hobby Lobby.  I love the feminine touch it gives to this card.  

So, head on over to the I Am Roses Challenge Blog for all the deets.  Good luck and happy crafting.  Hope your day is filled with Love and Whimsy! HUGS
