Long Stem Roses for "Less is More".....

Hello everyone: Lately I've been trying really hard to learn to make CAS cards, my style is not to busy but, on the other hand, it's not CAS either so, as with every challenge I've taken in my life, I just jump into this one to see if I could pull it off.
In the process I've found several challenges out there that are all about CAS cards so, I took this chance and I've participated in two so far with great response from you.
This time I'm taking up the challenge over at Less is More with a theme of "Congratulations", this is the card I made for it.
I chose this image from I Brake for Stamps because the long stem roses look just perfect on the side of the panel, leaving enough white space to make it a CAS card, the sentiment was stamped and die cut to give it a bit of dimension.  I stamped the image on Ninah solar white card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored this buds with my Prismacolor pencils and baby oil using paper stumps, besides water coloring, this is my other favorite way to color.
Here is a close up of this beautiful rose buds.
So I hope you like this CAS card, I'm really enjoying this style now, I think I'm getting the hang of it. Thank you so much for visiting, please leave me your comments, I love reading them, they always make me smile. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Till next time, keep on stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
