A Rosie Anniversary Card

Today's card was made using this color palette from the Color Throwdown challenge blog.

Pretty! Right?
My colors are Sweet Blush, Melon Berry and Scarlet Jewel from PTI.
After stamping the small roses from "Sweet Life" from PTI onto my strip of white cardstock, I ran it through the Grand Calibur with a MFT embossing plate to give it some texture. The sentiment is also from MFT, "About Anniversaries".
I decided it needed a little punch of color, so I added the leaves after I took the first photo for the challenge. I struggle sometimes thinking flowers always need green leaves. I'm trying to be an overcomer. Lord help me! Thanks for looking! Blessings~ Birgit

The texture adds such a nice detail! I agree with just don't seem fully dressed unless they're wearing green leaves! :-) So glad you were able to play along with us at Color Throwdown!
