Double D, Kentucky Derby Hat Inspiration

Good Morning! 

A brand new Challenge is up and running over at the Double D Challenge Blog

Here is your Inspiration Tile:

Here is my card:

I absolutely adore all of the Teal and Pink colors and those beautiful roses!

My stamps are by Gina K Designs, Bitty Blossoms and Flourishes, Roses Are Red.
Stamped in Amalgam Black ink and colored with Copic Markers.
I also added a bit of accent using a Sakura Glitter Pen.

My background texture was created using a Basket Weave Embossing Folder 
and then I sponged Dove Gray ink all over it.
Sheer Ribbon.
Adhesive Pearls colored with Copic Markers.

Please come on over to the Double D Blog and join in all of the FUN!
