{To a Wild Rose}

   

 Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I am happy to show you a card made with the stamp set "Wild Rose" by A Muse Studios. I have wanted this set from the very first time I looked at the catalog! I sponged the rose with Shell, and Cherry pigment inks. This is my favorite way to use the A Muse pigment inks. The inks blend so beautifully. LOVE them. I cut two stamped roses out and attached them to the card with foam dots. I stamped the wrought iron border stamp using "Slate" ink. I did not have any A Muse light pink ribbon yet so I cut off a length of taffeta ribbon and sponged it with Shell pigment ink. Oh my goodness I am SO happy with the result. Now I will always have matchy ribbon! The pretty butterflies are also from A Muse. I included all 3 sizes in my picture so you could get an idea of how big/small they are. These are my first butterfly metal dies and I am so happy I waited to get them. They are 8.95 for all three sizes  and compared to the other butterfly dies available I think that is a great price. I accented my butterflies with sparky rhinestones. I am extremely happy with the way my card turned out and I am already thinking of my next card using this set! If you would like to order this set for yourself please contact me, or visit my webstore at   https://www.amusestudio.com/cardsbyronnie
