A Valentine Rose -- for IDCB

It's Wednesday, and time for a new challenge at Inspiration Destination Challenge Blog (IDCB). One of our sponsors this week is Doodle Pantry.  I love their images, papers, and sense of humor!  However, I went serious with this one. 

This Doodle Pantry image is called "Rose Bloom". I comes in an uncolored and percolated version.  I chose the uncolored, then colored it with Copic markers, trying out some new, for me, shades of greens and pinks.
The sentiment is a stamps from Simon Says Stamp.
I used Lawn Fawn stitched dies on this, and papers by Piggy Tales -- Hickory Dickory Dock, 12x12.  The ribbon is from the same collection.  The bling is from My Mind's Eye. The card base is Pixie card stock from Close To My Heart
Join us this week at IDCB, where it's always "anything goes"!
