SC194 Christmas Rose

Good Wednesday evening!
This rose from Stampin' Up!'s Bloomin' Beautiful set is my absolute favorite stamp that I own. I use it so often- I just love it. The focal panel on today's sketch challenge at SCS is long, so of course, I immediately thought of THE ROSE! I've been on a Christmas card kick lately so I thought, "oh yea, I can 'Christmatize' THE ROSE!"
I stamped it on white cs with black ink. I water colored the bloom with Rose Red and Riding Hood Red inks and a water pen. The stem and leaves are done in Always Artichoke. I added Stickles for an icy shimmer.
I used my Cute and Curly Christmas label stamp and punch for the sentiment.

Stamps: Bloomin' Beautiful, Cute and Curly- SU
Paper: white, always artichoke, bella rose dp
Ink: black, rose red, riding hood red, always artichoke
Extras: rhinestones, ribbon, Stickles, label punch, paper piercer, water pen, dimensionals

Oh boy, it's getting late and I still have to make lunches for tomorrow! Thanks so much for stopping by, and please keep smiling a lot! :):)
