It is a Rose and a Tiny Envelope

Another post to share some sketch cards. 
 First off, my Card Positioning Systems card for this week. Taylored Expressions is our sponsor and I was so happy to get to play with this amazing set, Rosy Posey.  It included some solid roses and some outline roses, both in two sizes. 
 I used some Clearsnap stamp pads.  I used a Chalk stamp pad in Orchid Pastel.  It was just the right kind of ink to stamp a nice, solid rose.  Next I stamped over that with a ColorBox Die stamp pad in Dark Cherry.  The leaves were also stamped in that same Dark Cherry and after I cut the scallop circle label with a Spellbinders Nestablities, I spritzed it with some Clearsnap Smooch Spritz. 
 Next up is my Unscripted sketches card for this week.  This week's sketch includes a piggyback challenge - use a pocket.
 I am so in love with the wonderful, vintage feel of these papers by BasicGrey and it was fun that the different patterned papers go together so nicely. 

I found this little vellum envelop in my stash and thought it was a great way to add a "pocket" to my card. 
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
