the Rose

hi there - couldnt sleep with my jaw aching (Tylenol just isnt doing it !!)
so created a card
pulled out scraps from Basic Grey, Websters Pages (including a piece of their vellum) and colors unknown...needed a sketch so went to Mojo Monday...the circle on this week's sketch was perfect for my rose...Rose is made with the Hearfelt Creation set "Grandiflora Rose" and punched out using the Blossom nestability

What do ya think? not too shabby for this ol insomniac LOL

really got into coloring my rose, wanted to add dimension without layers, just made small cuts
colored with Copics RV000, 02, and 21
used a MS punch for leaves (think I need to find a big leaf punch for large roses), McGill and EK.
Sentiment is from Rubber Stamp Tapestry (have missed them and so made a card with them also - will post it another day)

ok, guess I should at least go try and see if sleep will be my friend (-:
have a wonderful day,

card also entered in
Mojo Monday ends 8-8

Hi Linda,
That rose is stunning - the colouring gives so much depth to it. Beautiful card. I love the papers and of course my favourite pinks. Fantastic.
Hope the jaw settles down soon.
