Moments that Take Our Breath

For this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room, we were given a lovely inspiration photo and the direction to use flowers.  From the inspiration photo, I'm using the pink flowers and the idea of layers.

I used Maureen's fabulous VLV week 3 challenge sketch for my layout.

I tried to create a shabby vintage look for my card.  I made the rolled rose using a Sizzix die.  I added a button with a little thread bow in place of the ribbon bow on the sketch. 

Stamps:  Verve "Beautiful You"
Papers:  Basic Grey "Lily Kate", white cards stock for base
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Other:  Sizzix die "Flowers 3-D" for rolled rose, brown pleated ribbon and crocheted trim both from Making Memories "Trim Card Brun Antique Reverie," Recollections pearls, Tim Holtz distress tool, sewing machine, sponge, button from stash, linen thread

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be back in a bit with three more cards.  Today is the deadline for a couple of challenges that I wanted to enter.
