Roses in Winter for Beates #46 Weekend Challenge

Beate's Weekend Challenge is on her blog already, This is what I came up with to play. I think you are going to get sick off me soon, as I think this set is going to be one of my favourites. I just find the 2 step stamping so very relaxing and also the results can be so very different every time. I am working my way through all the Family Colours of Stampin' Up and Barely Banana is one I haven't used so here it is....

The base card is Mellow Moss, then Barely Banana stamped with same ink with the Canvas Background stamp and the little flower in the Roses in Winter set. The actual inkpad looks like orange until you stamp with it, I thought I had picked up the wrong inkpad. The reinker for this Barely Banana is Orange looking as well!!!

To do the Roses, this time I first stamped in Barely Banana, then Pretty in Pink with the next 2 sizes. The centre actually looks like Regal Rose but its not its the Pretty in Pink. The leaves are Mellow Moss stamped off once.
I used the corner rounder for the borders and Mellow Moss Taffeta Ribbon.

I stamped an envelope and an insert to finish the card.

Thanks for looking,
