Love Letter with Roses

Hello, thanks for swinging by today. The card i can show you today is one of my recent favorites. The colors are really nice together and on the soft pink ribbon (a piece of my ribbon share) are tiny little silver sparkles which repeats on the roses on which i used Glitter pens to highlight certain areas. I thought the layout of this card is nice - especially since i had only two sheets of coordinating paper. I found it in the Wedding section at Archivers.
Stamps: Magnolia Tilda from the new Valentines Collection (i *heart* this collection) and the roses are from Alota Rubberstamps
The inside of the card is decorated with single roses that i got from Magnolia - i think they can be found in one of the spring Collections 2008. They are my favorite especially since they look so pretty with the Valentines line AND with the Pink Collection. For sure a good investment!
The frame is cut out with a Sizzix die and i added some liquid pearls onto the grey frame. Stitching is done with silver thread. The scrolls are from the Grundge Stamp set that my friend Kristine gave me for Christmas la li lu.. yes i opened my package already :-) I can not believe it i wanted that for so long. Thank you so much!!!
