Sweet Stamps-Spring Flowers

It's another great challenge at Sweet Stamps .  Our challenge theme for this week is Spring Flowers.
   I used a Technique Junkies technique (latest newsletter) called Emboss Sparkle Resist. I used Pink and Red Distress inks and embossed the sentiment with Black Sparkle embossing powder. I am not sure if you can see the sparkle I added with the Gelly roll pen. I also dragged the butterflies thru Wild Honey ink and painted them with Creative Inspirations Fairy Dust paint.
  I also added a panel to write on inside:
 I LOVE Roses- my Mother (and BIL Jay) are Master Rose gardeners and I admit- I am not quite so good at growing them myself.  I really admire seeing them in gardens or in neighbor's yards as well.

Here are the Sweet STamps products I used on my card:

Another beautiful card and wonderful technique! Love all the red on here and that sentiment.
I'm not good growing roses either but love looking at them.
