Sweet Stamps Challenge #114 Use Any Three

Today is our 114th challenge on the Sweet Stamps Challenge blog.

  Now is your chance to show us your talent as you create your project using THREE OF ONE ITEM as the theme!!!!

 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".
