Say It with Roses

Roses - I love them, whether they are in the garden or a vase,
in a photo or a painting - I just love them! The Bed of Roses cling stamp from Penny Black Inc is a favourite of mine too!


I have stamped it using IMAGINE Crafts® Radiant Neon Pigment Ink in Electric Purple - we have a rose that is close to this colour called 'Shocking Blue' - the colour is divine and the perfume is amazing!!

The sentiment is also from Penny Black Inc. and has been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® and Fancy Tags Three Shapeabilities®.  The co-ordinating Want2Scrap© Nestabling has been added along with some flowers from my stash. 
Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner have been used on this card.



This card is linked to the following challenges:
