Oh So Happy

This card was made using Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #116 combined with the ColorMyHeart Color Dare Challenge #150 .  

The Rose/Leaves were stamped, colored with Shin-Han Markers, fussy-cut, added Clear Wink of Stella and adhered with 3D Thin Foam Tape for dimension. The leaves were curled on the tips. The Decorative Border was Paper Fundamentals "Slate", fussy-cut for the scalloped edges and added green color to center of each scallop. Embellishments added to Corners, and Sentiment  on Decorative Border.  

I had experimented with stamping this rose several times, not with much success; however, think I finally figured out how to get the rose to look like a rose. Usually tried different shades for the each layered stamp, but decided to use only the one color and put the first coat on lightly, and then heavily coat the stamp for the second layer.  I have a variety of colors in my stash, and who knows may show up in another card.

Submitted to the following Chalenge(s): 

The Outlawz Challenge - Thursday "Anything Goes" July 9, 2015, with Twist Die-Cuts.  Didn't include Twist, no Die-Cuts, just a lot of Fussy-cutting.

I love all the different patterns, Sue! Sometimes I don't give those small pattern B&Ts enough credit, but that green looks great behind your flower. Thanks for the inspiration on the Color Dare!
