Red roses

It's Sunday and it's time for a new bi-weekly "Stella Says Sketch" challenge over at Catch the Bug. Here's the sketch:

I used an image called rose block trio, these images don't really require any coloring but I added some red, green and yellow with my Promarkers.
The white background was embossed, the sentiment traslates "thinking of you", cut with a Sepllbinders die. Added lace bought on a trip abroad and black ribbon. It's quite a simple card really.

This card is also for:
Cards und More - # 167 No Designer Paper
Creative Corner - No Patterned Papers Allowed
Fab 'n' Funky - #318 Go Outside and be inspired by nature

The coloured roses look quite dramatic against the white and the ribbon threaded lace is a wonderful finishing touch
