Kristina's Colour Inspiration #17

Once again I love, love, loved making a card with this week's cool inspiration photo. I'm racing to get it online before the deadline as I've had to wait until daylight to take a photo that isn't mellow yellow!
I used the stamp set Baroque Motifs. I used the rock 'n roll technique to colour the flowers, which is where I inked up the stamps first in regal rose and then rolled the edges in rose red. The ribbon is the gorgeous regal rose wide grosgrain and the 'cherish' sentiment is from the set Warm Words, and of course, it wasn't complete without a white flat backed pearl from the pretties kit. By the way, watch out for those pearls if you're posting overseas, I had to fill out a customs declaration just because I had a pearl on a card I was sending today!!
Here's my card for this week:
And here's Kristina's photo:

Thanks also to everyone who has posted comments about my cards over the past few months - I really appreciate it! I also like that I then get links to lots of great blogs that I may have missed. Thanks also to those who would like to post a comment....but can't!! and email me anyway (Hi Cheryl!)

Put your best dress on and have a great weekend!
