I love the texture of this one! I'm seriously going to have to lay in a supply of the Tea Party ds -- the colors are gorgeous.
I layered Lavender Lace textured cs with Certainly Celery and sheets from Tea Party ds. All layers were sponged wit either Always Artichoke or Regal Rose and stitched on the sewing machine.
The rose was done with the Shimmery Watercolor Roses technique, which I love!

I used the sketch from Mojo Mondays (see the badge to the right!) to do this card. It's hard for me to work within the confines of a sketch, but I gave it a try. It looks a bit contrived to me, but what do I know? LOL!
I layered textured So Saffron and sheets from the Bella Birds ds. The central image was stamped on vanilla, watercolored and overstamped with Canvas in Sahara Sand. All elements of the card were also overstamped with the spatter pattern from itty Bitty Backgrounds in both Sahara Sand and Close to Cocoa.

I totally got caught up in Patty Bennet's watercolor roses technique this weekend. I learned this technique from watching Patty Bennet's tutorial over at Patty's Stampin' Spot.
