Yellow Roses for Mom

Still playing with the May CardKit from Simon Says Stamp.  Since my previous 2 cards used lots of the papers from the kit, I thought I'd make a card that used no papers and all stamps.

SSS May Card Kit

I've been wanting some roses like these; they're a big part of why I wanted to own this kit.  Did you see what Jennifer McGuire did with them?  Swoon!  I'm a yellow rose girl, so that's how I colored these, sponging on mustard seed distress ink and then highlighting them with a spun sugar distress marker, to simulate Peace roses, which are my absolute favorites.  I also wanted to use that mesh banner, so that was stamped in Charcoal mid-tone ink, and, keeping it simple I finished with the sentiment (love the font!) and some of the little circle stamps, which I then filled in with the petal pink liquid pearls included.  I had forgotten about liquid pearls, but I'm pleased with how easy they are to use!
