Red Rose


I found a bargain paper pad at Tuesday Morning that was a steal! The cover was missing and the first couple pages were torn, but they reduced it even more than the sticker price, so it was a win-win for me! 
I pulled out one of the pretty black and white papers to make this card. I used a GinaK stately flowers 6 rose stamped image, coloring it with Copics and an Emerald Envy marker and adding clear wink of stella over the finished rose. I layered it with some Gina Marie stitched ovals in white and Emerald Envy and placed it all on a white card base. I'll add a sentiment later when I find a use for this card.
Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Wednesday!

Lucky you on your find! We have a Tuesday Morning close by here and it's beside a JoAnn's. I have never gone into the store but after reading your post....I think I will go give it a look around! This card is a beauty, Carol. That paper is very pretty and so striking! Love your beautifully colored rose as well and those Stitched dies! Great card & great paper find! TFS and hope you have a nice day! Hugs~

Since I love roses, I think this is awesome. Love the image, and great coloring too. I check into the local TM, just because I see you finding some great bargains. Nada at ours. The paper looks so pretty with the green and red and the classic stitched oval. Really an elegant card. TFS & Hugs WTG on snagging a good buy.

Oh ho pretty. That Emerald Envy against that black and white paper is just stunning and the the red rose really puts it over the top. Just gorgeous. Hope you have a good evening.

Your bargain paper was a great find and provides a lovely backing for the beautifully coloured rose. I like the green matting layer as well.

What a great find! We had a Tuesday Morning move into the neighborhood and out again in the blink of an eye. Well, it's better for the budget that it's gone but I miss finding great deals.

You card is very lovely. I spied the wink right off. Very glam!

That paper pad was a good find! I love seeing what Tuesday morning has, but I do not go often as it is out of the way. The flower is beautiful!
