Stamp With Us 1st Challenge

Stamp With Us is a new blog set up by three Stampin' Up! ladies, who aim to bring us classes retreats and challenges, you can find more information here StampWithUS. This is the first challenge I've entered so far. The challenge was to use this sketch:

Lovely Simple Rose

This card is the first one I made with my newest stamp set A Rose is a Rose which I treated myself to when I reached Bronze 2. I think this stamp set is gorgeous, I know I say this about most sets but this truly is. Something wonderful happens when you stamp the second layer and it just comes alive. I can see this being a set I will use many, many times.
Stamps: A Rose is a Rose
Cardstock: Whisper White and Creamy Caramel
Ink: Regal Rose, Rose Red, Certainly Celery and Always Artichoke.
I have also started to run card classes from my home, please email me at for more details if you are interested in attending.
