Inspired by Stamping Challenge #48

Inspired by Stamping offers an inspiration challenge every Thursday (Queensland, Australia time). The challenge lasts for one week, then a new photo is revealed! Here is the photo/color combination for this week's challenge!

 Look at that stunning table!

I wanted to make a pretty and romantic card for this challenge. I think fancy chandeliers are very romantic, so I stamped on from the Paris set, in green ink. I used a wonderful sketch from Mojo Monday (Sketch 281). I love the circles!

I stamped a sentiment from Flowers Bloom with gray ink. I created a great bow treatment with ribbon, a paper rose, and two stick pin leaves.

 Now, come and play along with the team!
Basic rules of the challenge: Please use the colors in our photo as your main colors. Upload your card/project to your blog or online gallery and leave a link to your project using the linky widget at the bottom of the IBSIC Blog post. When uploading to online galleries please add IBSIC #48 to your post. (Each challenge is up for one week.)
At this time ALL products (stamps, paper, dies) are welcomed with our challenge. You do not have to incorporate an IBS stamp set or flowers.
