First Birthday Card of the New Year

Welcome to my first birthday card post of 2011. I made this card and matching box using some new stamps that I received for Christmas. The new stamps are Heartfelt Creations HCPC2262 Grandiflora Rose and HCPC3319 Stems. For the card,  I stamped 3 roses of varying sizes using Versamark on GKD Lipstick Red CS and heat embossed with Clear EP. I cut these out with Nesties Blossom Dies that I have had for awhile but never used. I shaped the flowers and layered together using scor-tape. Added some glitter around the petals using Sakura Glitter pen. I stamped the leaves on green CS scraps also using Versamark and Clear EP. Cut these out and attached to the rose. I stamped the Birthday sentiment from GKD Fanciful Tags by Nina using Memento Rhubarb Stalk and SU Handsome Hunter inks. Cut this out with Spellbinder Fancy Tags but trimmed off the fancy ends. Assembled the card following Annabelle Sketch Challenge ABSC033 for January. Used GKD PL Ivory and Lipstick Red CS and Basic Grey Jovial Patterned paper for layers. Attached the rose and sentiment and finished with Green Rhinestone Bling. Love how this came together...can you tell the patterned paper was really designed as a Christmas paper?  But love how the colors look together.
I created the box from white and beige CS and made the rose same as one on the card.
