The Rose

Here is the pretty Valentine's Day card I made today:

The card base is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and made of white card stock.  I cut a piece of dark red card stock at 4 1/2"x3 1/4," then a piece of white card stock at 4 3/8"x3 1/8."

The stamps are from Jaded Blossom.  The rose is from their new Roses set.  I covered the rose in pink ink.  I then Took one of the stamps from the Valentine Panels set, covered it in red ink, and "kissed" that onto the rose stamp.  Once I did that, I stamped my rose image onto a piece of white card stock.  That way you get some pattern on an otherwise plain image.  I then fussy cut around the rose image, leaving a small white border.  I then covered all the pink with Wink of Stella because I wanted the rose to shimmer and sparkle.

The stem of the rose was stamped on the white panel that was cut earlier.  I used the Alphabet Dies from Jaded Blossom for the word "love."  The little heart is a part of one of the panels from Valentine Panels and the "I" and "you" are from 100% Hipster, also both from Jaded Blossom.

I made this for the following challenges:
My Sheri Crafts: fussy cutting
