Feel the Love Challenge

My second post for today ( no, I'm not kidding !) . I just had to put my card in for Flourishes Feel the Love Challenge over that the Flourishes newsletter which ends at 5:00 Eastern today. My card uses the rose from I Love Roses set . I have used a Cuttlebug folder for the card base.
The roses were stamped three times with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Neenah white , then colored with Copics. Two rose buds were then cut out and layered atop the main image using the tole method. The image panel and frame panel were cut out using a scalloped rectangle Nestie.
Then using a very fine tip paintbrush, I added Peaceful Poppy Radiant Pearls to the rose for brightness and contrast . Everything was layered up as shown. Using an Inkessentials pen, I wrote the word " love" to the lower right corner on the black panel. Tiny red gemstones , red satin ribbon along with sheer dotted ribbon finish it off. Recipe below. I think that will do it for today.
Recipe:
Stamps: I Love Roses by Flourishes
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Neenah white, Bazzill red, black
