Daring Cardmakers-Tasty Template

This weeks challenge set by Jane from the Daring Cardmakers is a template.
Now I nearly didn't do this one as I'm not really over fond of templates but I've been feeling a bit off it today and couldn't concentrate on making lists or doing up class packs so I decided to have a play and I really quite enjoyed it.
I have followed the template quite closely as I am not proficient enough at using them to start moving things around etc.
So here is my effort........nothing groundbreaking or innovative.......although I was very pleasantly surprised at the lovely vintage wash on the stamped rose which is done with Memories ink pads. I've never tried painting with these before and thought they would be very strong colours but picked up with a waterbrush they give this lovely soft, faded, chintzy look. The rose and text stamps are Elusive Images.
Paper is by K&Co and I have chalked it to age it a bit.
Thanks again to the DCM team.........I just don't know how you do it week after week.
