Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Mother's Day or Special Girl

This week's challenge on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Blog is Mother's Day or a Special Girl.  I made this card:
I started with a white notecard and added a piece of rose-patterned paper.  I then stamped two Memory Box stamps--E1760 Gorgeous Bloom and B1761 Gorgeous Mini Bloom--repeatedly on watercolor paper using Hero Arts Raspberry Jam Ink.  I smooshed Worn Lipstick Distress Ink onto a craft sheet, spritzed it with water, and used my waterbrush to paint the multiple roses.  When they were dry, I fussy-cut them in a variety of ways so I could stack them to make a dimensional flower of seven layers. I added leaves cut with PoppyStamps Lorelai Leaf 839 die and the leaves from the Memory Box Lovely Aster die # 98510.  I placed the rose in the lower left over one printed on the paper.  I cut a banner using a Simon Says Stamp die and added the coordinating stamp "SO SWEET!".

Beautiful. Love the 3-D big rose. Stamping and card-making are good projects for these snowy days. Connie
