Heartfelt Creations Timeless Amour Encore

Welcome to  Inspiration Wednesday at Heartfelt Creations. Today  I have for you my version of clean and simple.  I used a stamp from the  Timeless Rosette PreCut Set  from the  newly released Timeless Amour Collection  I chose the sentiment  Memories with you are like roses in December to go with the beautiful pink roses with a bit of  frost on the gold gilt. The roses and rose bud were created using Heartfelt Creations  stamp,cut and create method. They look life like to me. What do you think?

TSC36: Monochromatic White

“If I’m honest I have to tell you I still read fairy-tales and I like them best of all.”
   Audrey Hepburn

I created this tag for The Stampsmith Challenge.  This is a Monochromatic White Tag.  I added feathers, pearls, chunky glitter and  to Audrey Hepburn's Crown a Swarkowski Crystal (similar to Swarovski).

The flowers were cut from CTMH Artiste cricut cartridge, the leaves were cut from CTMH Art Philosophy cricut cartridge. The Venetian Mask and border were cut with Spellbinders.   I posted the lower picture so you can see how dimensional this beautiful white tag is. Enjoy!
