Beautiful Blue

Hi there 🙂  I had this image almost all colored up last month, then life hit… know how it goes… Well, I got it all colored and on a card now 🙂  The beautiful rose is from Make It Crafty, and is part of one of Zoe’s Floral Elements sets (#7).  I added the dew drops (for last month’s challenge….oops), while I was coloring the image with my Copics.

Afterwards, I fussy cut the rose out.  The background is embossed with a We R Memory Keepers folder, with an inlaid wreath die cut.  I used the same shimmery green paper to cut the wreath as I used to mat the background.  I added 2 little blue sparkle balls as an embellishment.  I tried a number of different methods to add a sentiment to the front of the card, but they all detracted from the design, so the birthday sentiment is on the inside 🙂  Love the simplicity of this, and how it makes the rose POP 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following:
