Sketch Rose Branch in more ways than one!

Happy almost weekend to all!  I know ... once again, it's been a long time.

I was honored to have been asked to create 25 cards for the February 2016 Look Book for Memory Box, and spent several weeks working on this project.  So much fun!  Last week the project was completed, and you can view the book online by using this link: February 2016 Look Book.

So moving right along ... my card, which was part of Memory Box's latest Spring release blog blitz in early January, features the Sketch Rose Branch, and oh, the possibilities! You will see another card using this stamp further in the post.

Thinking of You-3
I die cut two of this beautiful die, one in green and one in cream. I snipped out all the flowers from the cream die cut, including the buds, and glued them over the corresponding green flowers, adding pearls to the centers. I cut a piece of cream card stock slightly smaller than the green card base, cut a window using a die from the Rectangle Layers set and then embossed that piece. I sponged Peeled Paint Distress Ink through the Texture Tiny Dots stencil (unfortunately no longer available from Memory Box) onto a piece of cream card stock that was cut slightly larger than the window, and glued that to the card base.
Thinking of You-4
I added the assembled Rose Branch to the front of the embossed piece and then popped that with foam tape to the card base. The sentiment is from the Springtime Bunnies clear stamp set, which I cut apart to fit the window opening. 
Thinking of You-5

Here is another card using the same die:

Happiest - 1

Here I die cut the flower in white and colored the flowers, stems and leaves by sponging on Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint Distress Inks.  The background is done with the smooshing technique using Scattered Straw Distress Ink. The sentiment is the Happiest cling stamp from Memory Box.

You can see another version of this card in the February 2016 Look Book!  So glad you stopped by!
