 It was a Monday, Monday for me as I created this card!! I was in the mood for Roses.  I decided that they would be yellow reminding me of the SUNSHINE!!!  So I began to choose my THREE OF ANY ITEM!!  Continuing along my yellow theme I stamped the Petite Rose with Tuxedo Black Momento Dye Ink .  I picked my Copics to color the roses.  I stamped the sentiment Know That I Care .  The Roses and Sentiment were die cut with Cheery Lynn's Little Stackers Ovals  and Little Stacker Scallop Ovals .  I used one of Cherry Lynn's New Release Borders, Tiny Bubbles Border .  These borders are very cool!! Then I needed a couple of corners, Lace Corner D .  Used a Pearl Pen to accent some pearls.  

I was pleased as punch with my card!! I showed my card to my Darling Husband. Now remember, I said Monday, Monday in the beginning!!  He looks at the card and said, "That is very pretty, but what is the saying?" I read it to him and said, "Oh NO!!"  Roses are RED and mine were YELLOW!!  Well, I decided, I was not doing the whole card over. I stamped two more rose coloring them RED!!!
I cut each one out gluing one over the stamped yellow rose and removing the popped up yellow one!! So that is my story and I am sticking to it!! Thus we have a yellow card with RED roses!!! 

Copics Used:
R20, R27, R29
YG03, YG06, YG63

Finished size is 4.25" x 5.50".
