A Rose for You

I made this card for the Featured Stamper challenge yesterday, to case JayDeKay. I love her gallery! I chose this card for my inspiration.

I changed...

Different stamps
Added yellow and ribbon,
Left off corner punch


The flower, from A Year of Flowers, is colored with Copic markers. The background was dry embossed with the birds and vine CB folder and sponged with So Saffron ink. I used nestabilities to cut the scallop rectangle and the oval pieces for the greeting.

Thanks for looking!

I hope you have a happy Monday! (Is that an oxymoron? LOL, Okay, try your best to have a great day.)
