Roses for rose

This was a commissioned birthday card for a 90 year old, named Rose, so  I thought, what better than to use roses on the card.

I used one of my favourite stamps by Magenta, inking with memento tuxedo black  and colouring with spectrum noir pens. I cut into the four squares and mounting on to a piece of magazine freebie paper. I used another piece to add to the cut off edge of the A5 card, using a Martha Stewart Happy Birthday punch. The sentiment strips were done on my dymo letratag. I added a matching piece of paper inside.


This is for:
