I Believe - Bloggers Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  Thank you to those who played along with last weeks To Die For Challenge, there were lots of wonderful creations!  This weeks challenge is a Color Challenge - use the colors Black, White/Vanilla and a SPLASH of one additional color.

I went with a splash of Rose

The quote is from the Artistic Outpost Quote and Quotables inked in Black and Rose, then stamped on Vanilla card stock.  The lovely pattern papers are from My Minds Eye.  To embellish I added a Double Bow from Black Crinkle Ribbon tied with Becca's Peg Bow Maker, some Zva Creative Taupe Flourish Pearls and a Rose Blossom.  To create the blossom I cut 3 of  the smallest blossoms using  Spellbinders Blossom 3 die, then separated the cut blossoms, so I would have 2 from each die cut.  I crinkled them, inserted a brad in the center, spritzed with water, crinkled a bit more then heat to hold the shape.
