Flourishes Friday Free For All - The Rose

 It's another Flourishes Friday Free For All! Today I'm sharing another card I made for the Splitcoast Dirty Dozen team. This card was inspired by Bette Midler's 'The Rose' and is using A Year In Flowers, Set 2.

I stamped the image on Classic White card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers before cutting it out with Spellbinders' Classic Oval and matting it with Scalloped Classic Oval Nestabilities. I stamped the sentiment on my patterned paper for a subtle effect. Pretty simple layout, so I won't bore you with details on that :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
