CAS rose

I made this for a friend's birthday. I hope she'll like it!
I didn't stamp the rose (GinaK Designs' A Year of Flowers) with black but with London Fog (Memento) instead. It gives it a very hand-drawn feel. I used my Spectrum Noirs (Reds) to color the rose and then used the blender pen to give some texture and highlights. The leaf was colored with a green from the "lights" set.
The front panel is popped up on the base which was shaded with Fired Brick (Tim Holtz).
