The Card Concept #28

Another bit of gorgeous photography at The Concept ... who wouldn't love to have this beauty delivered on Valentine's Day??

 
My husband has this little gizmo called a Spyder installed on our computer that will assist him with editing photos he takes... Tom is color deficient... I am not. Having said that, and you're probably wondering "why did she say that?" I surely hope that I'm seeing these colors as I should... at any rate... For The Card Concept #28:
 
 
Since I only have two pinks in my supplies, I'm hoping this Versamark Pixie Dust will show up enough to see here! 
 
Lots of supplies again... sorry... had to play with a new to me PTI stamp set called Botanical Blocks.  I heat embossed MFT's Romantic Script first on the white cardstock, then selectively stamped the rose first, in pink, then the entire stamp in SU Crumb cake... add a tiny bit of water - done. 
 
I'm happier with it than I thought I would be when I started, and think the SSS Smoke CS looks fantastic as a base for these soft colors. Wait! I'll bet it's the embossed kraft-wood... you know how much I'm enjoying that little technique.

Lovely, lovely elements on this card, Michele. Only two pinks? Say it isn't so. Oh, and wait til you see my woodgrain when I post my card for this challenge.

Wow, this is stunning Michele! I would say you got the colors spot on! I love the grey stitched background, the kraft wood grain is perfect to sit the botanical block on. Your pink rose is so gorgeous and I really love the scripty stamp you stamped on. You knocked this one out the park Michele! Hugs, Brenda
