Sweet and Simple Rose

Hi all! What a terrific day and actually week this has been. I just love the weather this week - just getting to 80 degrees with sunshine and light breezes. Just a perfect day! This is what I think of when someone mentions summer. It could stay like this through September and I'd be one happy camper!
It's funny not doing a sketch today, because I've been doing so many lately. They're so much fun and really addicting. But today was more of a simple, straightforward stamping day. So that's what I did - a simple rose card. I just love the Fifth Avenue Floral set. You can do so much with it depending on what you're in the mood for, either sweet and simple or embossed elegance.
See what I mean with this one? Just straight stamping. I didn't even mask the flowers! Add a touch of color with my Stampin' Pastels (which have been sadly neglected of late), a snippet of ribbon, and a border punch, and you're all set! What could be easier? But still just as sweet as sugah!
All stamps and materials by Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Basic Black, and Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Stampin' Pastels, Eyelet Border Punch, Pink Taffeta Ribbon
Hope you enjoy this card. Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to leave me a note - they mean so much to me!
