Rose Wonder

Today I have had a play with the Rose Wonder stamp set and matching Rose Garden Thinlits dies.
Now anyone who knows me, also knows that despite my favourite colour being pink,
 I have a tendency to make lots of blue cards. 
 I recall seeing a play many years ago (I think it was The Glass Menagerie) 
where a young girl suffered from pleurosis, and a boy nicknames  her "blue roses".
I think that with that at the back of mind, it prompted me to make this card!

The colour combo here is Night of Navy, Sahara Sand, White and Silver.
The background was stamped randomly with the rose stamp in Sahara Sand.
The rose itself was stamped in Night of navy, onto Watercolour paper, 
then coloured in with an Aqua Painter and the Night of Navy ink.
I then cut this out but not the leaves.
The rose die was cut out of Brushed Silver card and I removed the leaves from this,
Then stuck it on top of the coloured rose.
The leaves were cut out using the leaf die, and I cut these down to make smaller and larger ones.
The greeting is from Wetlands (you may have noticed that I use the sentiments from this set a lot!)
The only embellishments are two Basic Rhinestones.

I wondered what it would look like if 'winked' it with Stella, so here it is 
- don't know whether it shows up on here, but looks pretty good in real life.
