Using Scraps #3

Here's my last card using scraps from This Card & it's my last entry for the Impression Obsession challenge.  This time I used the last big roses scrap (IO Sketched Roses) along with a scrap of the solid cardstock I colored with the same 2 pink Zigs. 
The area between the the top 2 & the bottom rose was perfect for a sentiment strip & I used one of the IO Greetings Top Edgers.  I wanted an elegant look to this card, so after stacking the die cuts 3 high I heat embossed over white pigment ink with a very, very old satin embossing powder I used to use all the time--just love that look!  Tried to leave it plain, but in the end white & gold sequins won out--haha!  It was fun & challenging to come up with 3 very different cards using the beautiful left over scraps.  I'll never get tired of the Sketched Roses stamp!  Just scroll down if you want to see the other 3 cards.  I'm also entering DRU, Paru's Cardmaking Challenge & SSS Wednesday.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
