Simply Soft....

Today I am featuring a guest designer, my friend Rose Kerry.  Rose does beautiful work and I asked her if I could share this lovely card she made recently for a swap I hosted.  Look at these beautiful colors!   Rose used Island Indigo for the card and layered it with Lucky Limeade.  Rose was nice enough to provide us with a supply list (see at the end of this entry.)
 Here is a side view.  Rose used the Simply Soft hostess set for the image and the sentiment is from the Loving Thoughts stampset.  The photo above shows the sheen on the flowers.  Rose used Crystal Effects on those flowers to make them stand out.  What a small addition to a card but what a HUGE impact it makes.  I want to remember that trick!
We all call Rose the "Brad Queen" because she always uses so many brads on her cards. It's these special touches that  make her cards such a stand-out!  Big thanks to Rose for providing this LOVELY card for me to share with you today!!
