LOC Vintage Roses and Lace

I have made this card for this weeks Card Patterns Weekly Sketch Challenge as Layers of Color is the sponsor. 

You can win Nina Brackett’s 'lovely' new stamp set, The Love Chapter! Make a card using the sketch from Card Patterns and enter their challenge.  This is what I have created

The background script is from the The Love Chapter art stamp set, illustrated by LOCs newest illustrator, the talented Nina Brackett and has been cut out using my Spellbinders Grand Calibur and the Lacy Circles Nestibilitie - I love this Nestie - it is divine!  I am thankful my hand held circle cutter has a circle that fits perfectly, should Iwant to pop it up - as I didn't even think about getting rhe Circles Nestie - better pop that on my ever growing WISH LIST!!

 and the gorgeous roses are from the Vintage Roses art stamp set  and have been lightly coloured with SU Chalks and a Blender Pen

I have added a Kaiser Brad to the lace bow -I am really loving the soft look of lace bows, especially on a feminine card - lace and roses - a perfect combination - in my opinion!  LOL!

This card is for the following challenges:
Digi Doodles Shop - Anythng Goes
Fresh Brewed Coffee - Love/Valentine
Aud's Sentimental - Love Theme
Fairy Tale - Flowers
Crafty Pad #104 - Something New - Art Stamp Set
