A Rose is a Rose

Dear Ones~
Papertrey Ink is celebrating their 9th year anniversary as a company. And with that celebration comes lots of challenges and other festivities. For the first challenge we are asked to pick a color recipe and use the colors on a card.

The recipe I chose is by Laurie Willison

And here is my card:
Unfortunately I don't have the inks from PTI that are included in the recipe, but I think I matched them pretty well with Gina K inks. The yellow looks more chartreuse in the photo, but trust me, it's yellow. Stupid camera!!!! 
This is a one layer card, stamped with 3 different stamp sets, all from Papertrey Ink. After I stamped all the images I embellished with gold and white irRESISTible Pico Embellishers for some texture.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD White Card Stock
PTI The Sweet Life Stamp Set
PTI Harvest Berries Stamp Set
PTI Botanical Silhouettes Stamp Set
GKD  Inks in Passionate Pink, Bubblegum Pink, 
Jelly Bean Green, Black Onyx and Lemon Drop  
IrRESISTible Pico Embellishers
Judy Dots

This will be entered in:
