Live Beautifully Month Long Challenge

The Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog is having a month long challenge featuring the colors from the Live Beautifully May National Scrapbooking Month special paper pack.   The rose on my card was "fussy cut" from the beautiful floral paper.  The pink background paper has slight ombre tones.

Here is another view of the card to show off the application of Gold Shimmer Brush along the petal edges.

Close to My Heart products used:
     Live Beautifully paper
     Eggplant CS
     Birthday Sparkles
     Ranger Gold Fine Detail Embossing Powder
     Black CS
     Gold Shimmer Brush     

My card layout was inspired by this Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch:

     Crafting by Designs--Anything Goes
     Country View Challenges--Flower Power
     Hiding in My Craft Room--May Flowers
