Pink Rose
I was inspired by The Charitystamp Challenge Blog
for their monthly theme of 'Flower Power'.

To make my card I used masking and blending techniques with
Distress, Archival and Adirondack inks and the Rose Clarity Stamp.
I used the Clarity Sorry sentiment as I thought it went with my overall colours and theme.
After putting the card together I popped on some subtle glitter, using a pen, onto the rose and the sentiment.

I also embellished the card with white Glitter Stickles to represent
rain falling from the rose (and tears).

The pink and grey twine added balance to the card and the small shrink plastic rose was a nod to Barbara and her very funny blog video with her and Dean.
I hadn't tried this technique before and it is fun!

Loved doing the card
