Bashful Wasabi Roses

Well it took me all day to get it posted but finally, here is my Diva card for today. I thought I might struggle with these colors... and I did a little, but worked it out in the end. The Bashful Blue threw me for a loop but I squeezed it on there at the last minute. Initially I had the Bashful satin ribbon but it just rubbed me the wrong way so I switched it out for vanilla ribbon and a few Bashful square rhinestone brads- much better!

I can't believe I broke this stamp set out! It was a free gift from Stampin' Up! to current demonstrators who ordered something specific recently... and I've not been a big fan of it for some reason. However, I did enjoy the challenge of coloring it so it looked just right. To add some dimension and possibly cover up a few shading boo boos I ran it through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder. I love that look- almost like a textile or something.

For the sentiment I used the Curly Label punch to coordinate with the Top Note. I'm not sure if you can see it but the Rose Red card base was in my stash of pre-cut and folded cards and it was already stamped with the old Floral background stamp.

Well I hope you like it and decide to play along with our Diva Color challenge! We'd love to have you join us!

Have a great day.
