I decided to use the smaller rose and the leaves from the Rose Garden Thinlits as a stencil and sponged Sweet Sugarplum onto Whisper White cardstock. I die cut a set of leaves in Whisper White and another in vellum which always adds that soft floating feeling to a card. Congratulations is stamped on a hand cut piece of Whisper White and comes from the Balloon Celebration stamp set.
Whisper White always looks stunning and a dark mat and Night of Navy fits the bill perfectly and it helps to tone down the pinkness of the Sweet Sugarplum card base. Night of Navy splatters and copper sequins add the final elements.
I really liked the sponging effect left on the die cut leaves after I had used them as a stencil so decided to make another variation. Sadly the rose stencil didn't survive the process quite so well and ended up in the bin.
