Pastel roses

Jacqueline pointed out this inspiration challenge at Stamping Around. I was drawn to the beautiful roses in her basket. They are just the colors I love: pinks and apricots.

Here is what I came up with. I used a computer-generated excerpt from The Secret Garden as my background, colored the roses with Distress inks, and couldn't resist adding the pearls, as this is so feminine.
