Blue Roses

I just LOVE this "The Sweet Life" set by PTI!  The roses are so elegant, and as this card shows they even look beautiful in blue. : )  They didn't look so hot actually when I started.  I had tried stamping blues and greens for a card last year and it just didn't look good so I threw them in my "bits and pieces" stash and despaired of ever being able to use them.  But as I am on a quest to eliminate that stash, I decided to try to freshen them up.  I figured it couldn't get any worse, so I stamped a dark blue top layer and now I LOVE them!!  It just goes to show that anything can be salvaged.
