Peach & Brown Valentine

Ridiculously last minute, but made it!  Here's my entry for ODBD Color Challenge.  All stamps by ODBD except the sentiment which is A Muse.  I colored the little roses with Distress Marker Dried Marigold & then used the marker ink with my water brush to get a lighter shade for the ribbon on the wreaths.  I stamped & cut out the roses a second time to pop them up for dimension & they're covered in Wink of Stella.  The background is stamped in Distress Ink Antique Linen. Just got this pleated ribbon in a close-out for $1--fun to make use of some of it.  I just added the peach satin ribbon on top with Score tape. Used some scraps so I'm entering at Pixies Snippets Playground.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
