mother's day blessings...

Hello friends!!   Can't believe how quickly time is flying by... March is almost over!  Yikes!!!  Have a card to share that I made using Verve's Viva La Verve March Sketch #2.  I'm also going to pop this into this week's CASology challenge.  When I saw the cue word "blush" I initially thought I wouldn't be able to come up with something, but as the day progressed I hit on an idea... hope you like it.

A few months back I bought the Penny Black "rose" die.  I tried using not long after I got it, but my effort ended in dismal failure.  So I put the die way for another time... today!   Can you see where I went with the cue word?   I die cut the rose from white cardstock and then added a blush of color to the rose with two Copic markers:  RV00 and G40.   To keep things soft I used light pink and green cardstock, as well as vellum.  The sentiment is from the Verve set "On Occasion".  After layering everything up I added a few blush pink sequins.  Here is a close up of the rose.
 
Thanks for stopping by...
 
Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Close to My Heart pink and green; Close to My Heart vellum; Dies:  Penny Black & Spellbinders; Stamps:  Verve; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Sequins:  Verve:  Spring Mix
