A NEW RELEASE AT BUGAOO STAMPS

Today, the new release called Roses Block is the new release today from Bugaboo Stamps.  Here is the Thank You card I made featuring the new image:

I chose a pastel peach and apricot palette for my colours and the colouring is done using my alcohol markers.  Here is a closer look at the image and the little yellow flower sequins that I sewed onto the card using seed beads and invisible thread:

I then added the image to a apricot coloured cardstock mat.  The following were used to complete my card:

apricot coloured satin ribbon and bow
a sentiment, computer generated in WordArt, in MS Word.

Clock HERE to see the other beautiful cards made with the new image, and also a link to the Bugaboo Store.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
