Purple Rose...

A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world. -Leo Buscaglia
Hello there! Sorry I have been so quiet lately...I had company from Norway for a week and then my power, TV and Internet were down for 2 days!!! ACK!

I finally got a moment to stamp a sample for Sunday's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. I have wanted to try the technique where you emboss a line art flower and then drip in some paint...I think I chose the wrong paper to work with, but overall I am pretty happy with the results...
Of course, it is a birthday card, more for my Grandma's pile! :)

Stamps: Roses in Bloom (Waltzing Mouse,) Swirly Greetings (Elzybells)
Paper: Kioshi (Basic Grey,) Brown, Cream
Ink: Versamark, Chocolate Chip
Misc: Stardust Stickles, Pearls, Floss, Buttons, Watercolors, Embossing Powder
