Everything is coming up roses....

Hello Friends,
Here tonight with a card of roses to celebrate today's Year of Flowers festivities for Papertrey Ink's 6th Anniversary over on Nichole's blog: HERE

Here is my card using Year of Flowers: Roses.  This is the only Year of Flowers stamp set that I currently own.  I have many on my wish list and I hope to add to my collection one day soon.

 I colored the roses and leaves with Copic Markers and then added stickles diamond glue and some Martha Stewart glitter.  I was inspired by a vintage-looking card with roses and glitter that I saw at the store the other day.
 I added a blue outline to the areas around the stamping to help bring out the pink colors in the roses.  I blended lots of different pink markers to get this multi-toned look. It reminds me of some of the roses in my garden that look so striking and change colors as they open fully and also depending on the type and amount of light at any given moment. As you know I adore roses and my favorite one is a very old floribunda rose in a light pink color that changes to a blush pink color as it opens and then ages - it just gets lighter and lighter as it blooms.  And it smells like HEAVEN!  Thanks for taking a look at my card!



  1. Wow Jill ! This is so pretty with the large glitter on the very edge. Beautiful!

  2. I'm such a huge glitter fan. I really like how you added it to the edges. I never would have thought of that! Beautiful card!

  3. Oh how pretty, Jill! LOVE the glittery rose on your beautiful card!
    I can't join in this challenge :'(
    cause I don't own any of the YOF stamps which have been on my Wish List forever, but need to get some now that the new dies are coming out.

  4. GREAT job on the outline! Love the added shine and dimensions, Jill!
