Cottage Rose for FMS 557

My latest Stampin' Up! box contained the Abigail Rose suite of products. I'd resisted it for so long, even though it had called to me from the pages of the 2022-23 Annual Catalogue, and now I wonder why I did! It is just so beautiful!

I turned to the latest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches to get me going: it's always a great place for inspiration. 

The Abigail Rose DSP is wonderful and I can't wait to use it for some scrapbooking. It was with regret that I cut into the Ledger Page pattern as I so want to use it as a layout base but I like the result so much, I'll live with it. 😀

I stamped onto the Sahara Sand card front using Crumb Cake ink to get the background floral.  Before adding the ledger page DSP, I used the edging die from the Blossoming Happiness set to get the spiral bound detailing,

I stamped and coloured the large floral image in Crumb Cake on Very Vanilla then coloured it with Stampin' Blends. I fussy cut out a second rose to give the bouquet some lift before adding in some of the extra die cut bits of foliage to fill it out.

I stamped the sentiment in Crumb Cake on Very Vanilla and cut it using one of the dies from Labels Aglow dies. Because the die is quite long, I had to trim it down to better fit the sentiment. A trio of Champagne rhinestones finishes it off.

Update: Delighted to be chosen as a Perfect Princess at Freshly Made Sketches.
