Out of difficulties grow miracles

Hello! For my card today I used the gorgeous Roses background stamp from PinkByDesign. I heat embossed it with black embossing powder. I used distress inks in dusty concord, seedless preserves, shabby shutters, peeled paint, and antique linen to paint in the roses. I had the whole panel stamped and colored and then had an unfortunate trimmer accident so I had to cut the panel down to salvage it. Errrr.
The colors have way more depth in person. OH and I also mixed in some perfect pearls with my it's sparkly. :) The beautiful sentiment is from the Believe in Yourself set from PinkByDesign. I really love how this one turned out! :)
