Rambling Roses for a Birthday

I love roses and they are always in bloom in June for my birthday so what makes a better card for June birthdays than Roses!  I love this rose stamp from Flourishes and use it often because it colors so beautifully with copics regardless of your experience with  that medium.
I made this card for a card swap that my Stamping club held this week. Later, I will try to share some of the lovely cards that were made for the exchange.

Challenges to enter:
CR84FN Color Challenge: Light Pink, Med Green, and Neutral.  See Graphic below
CRAFTS and Me: Punch it out. I used a doily die, circle dies,  tag die, and corner punch.
Fab 'n' Funky: What'eva...easy enough challenge.
One Stop Craft Challenge: Use Texture. I have  in embossing, doily,  ribbon, and rhinestones.
Party Time Tuesdays: Summer birthday card. Roses are perfect for a June card.
Sentimental Sunday: Make a song inspired card. Inspired by "Rambling Rose" by Nat King Cole.
Craft Your Passion: Anything Goes. I just love doing floral cards.
