Ahhhh, roses!

I love this Roses in Winter stamp set, and it worked beautifully for the color challenge posted on SCS today. I don't usually enjoy using the bold bright colors, I'm more into pastels and softer colors, but I think I got them to work on this card. I inked the stamps with Only Orange ink and then rock'n' rolled them in Rose Red ink to soften the orange color. I also heavily sponged the edges of the card stock with the orange ink and then again with the rose red ink. I think it really softens it and makes it look so nice. I used the same techniques on the sentiment panel also cutting and embossing with Spellbinders Labels Four die. I even sponged the rose red ink onto the orange ribbon to soften that as well. What do you think?

Yeah, interesting color combo, but I actually like it. See, sometimes it's good to be forced out of our ruts.
