A Rose with Olivia and Oliver

This card was made for challenges to use a rose, for sponging inside a die and for a sketch challenge. I used a rose stamp from GKD "A Year of Flowers" by Melanie that I stamped with Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink and Bamboo Leaves ink and colored with Copics. I cut the image out with a Nesties circle die and sponged around the image with Bamboo Leaves ink  while it was still in the die.  Following the sketch on the right, I used mats of Basic Grey Olivia floral pattern paper and Oliver distressed green paper that I embossed with CB EF Victoria and assembled the card. I used a white CS for the base card. Added a white ribbon to finish.
