Simply roses

This is a card I made some time ago using the beautiful large rose stamp by Magenta. I stamped, heat embossed with black powder and coloured with a spectrum noir sparkle pen (shame that the photo doesn't show the sparkle). I cut into four pieces and mounted on to an offcut of black card. The background of the hot pink card blank was randomly stamped with a little rose stamp I've had for years and heat embossed with black powder.
