Roses on Paper sketch challenge

Santa was very good to me this year, and brought me lots and lots of stamps! I've been wanting to play with them, so I inked one of my new Magnolia's up to participate in the Roses on Paper sketch challenge. To play along, all you need to do is make a card with your choice of either a Magnolia, Rachelle Ann Miller, Sarah Kay or Whiff of Joy stamp using the sketch provided by Iris.

I always need birthday cards, and decided to make a girly one for this sketch. I based my colors around the pretty dp from Making Memories Garden Party scrap booking kit. It was an unheard of 57F here yesterday, and it put me in a mood for spring colors.

The image was colored with copic markers, and had stickles added for some sparkle. If you click on the image for a larger view, you can see that I also put some stickles on the flower petals. Love the bling! I sponged SU close to cocoa ink on the bottom for the ground, and SU soft sky ink on the rest of the background for some sky before layering it onto a piece of SU pink pirouette paper. I finished off the card by adding small gemstones to the flower centers, and 3 larger gemstones in the corner.
