Roses are Red

A very simple, inky card today, made with an Imagination Crafts stamp and a stencil from them too.  The card is 5x7, showing just how large the gorgeous rose stamp is.
 I created the background using Distress Inks in Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry, and an Imagination Crafts stencil, then a little Fired Brick Distress Ink round the edges.  I then stamped the rose image over the top in more Fired Brick ink, swirling the ink into the stamp for a textured effect.
The sentiment was stamped with a Papermania stamp onto a piece of card that I'd inked to match the topper, I raised it up on foam pads for a bit of dimension.
A trio of red gems finish my card.
