Rose Bouquet Card

I made this card for Penny Black's Website Wonder Contest.

I used the Rose die from their new Happy Everything collection.  I die cut several roses and coloured them using a mix of gelatos (red and black with a touch of metallic red for the flowers, plain green for the leaves and stems).  I then painted over the colour with water to blend it all in.

While those dried, I embossed my cardstock and stamped the sentiment from Penny Black's Hello Gorgeous set.  I attached the flowers using a mix of glue and pop-dots, then added a strip of glitter ribbon.
