The Rose of Friendship.....

Hello everyone: I have a card to share with you today for the CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge #184, with a sketch by Karen, here is my card.


This image is from the set Everything's Even Rosier from Power Poppy by Marcella Hawley, I thought of coloring it in pinks or reds but I decided to do it in yellows this time.
Yellow roses are a symbol of friendship, good health and joy and I think yellow roses are gorgeous, the shades they come in are amazing.
I stamped this image directly onto my card base with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored it with my Prismacolor pencils rubbing the color very, very lightly with a paper stump with very little baby oil because I didn't want it to sip through the panel and look stained on the inside, it worked great, I'm very happy with the results.
The sentiment is from the same Power Poppy set.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment is from a retired Flourishes set called "Picking Wild Flowers".

This is the sketch that inspired my card.

Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Stamps I used.
