Prefer to smile

I can't believe that we are in July already this year seems to be going fast on some days and yet dragging on others.  One of  my favorite flowers is the rose.  Here is a card that I made using a stamp that I recently purchased from Unity called Prefer to smile.  For this I used Derwent Watercolour Pencils to color the image.

Cardstock:  Bazzil; Recollection
Stamp:  Unity (see above for direct link)
Ink:  Distress - Tim Holtz - Black Soot
Ribbon:  Hobby Lobby
Bling:  Paper Studio

Derwent Watercolour Pencils
