Bouquet of Roses Grateful

I have made a card to share with you today using the pretty new Simon Says Stamp Bouquet of Roses stencil, from the new Blossoms and Butterflies release...
 I had a thought when I set out to use this pretty stencil, I wanted to use embossing paste.  So, I used my white embossing paste, let it dry, and then set out experimenting how to color the paste(the first one I used to experiment on, I embossed a second time for this card).  I tried watercolor...nah.  Markers...nope.  Then, I thought, what if I sponged distress ink over the flowers and leaves?  Well...the first go.  THEN, I put the stencil back over the dried paste flowers, masking around the flowers or leaves that I was sponging, to avoid the things I didn't want to sponge, and that was it!!  Something different for me, but I really like the look of these roses.  I used a Simon sentiment die and a sentiment strip to finish the card.  Here's a close up...
This was wonderful fun...and such a sweet surprise when I finished sponging!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
