Birthday Roses

Welcome to the weekend and I am playing along again with the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast. (photo below)  Such a great challenge to get your creative juices flowing!  
I haven't done rolled roses for so long so got out some pink papers and cut then rolled and glued a black pearl in the center.  I wanted to vary the leaves behind the roses so I did that by colouring the large ones with Copic markers and the smaller ones were done by using the LEAVES die cut then dragged them through wet green Distress inks on a non-stick craft sheet.  The banner was done by inking up my FLOWER FLOURISH background stamp with pink Distress inks, spraying with water then stamped off before going onto my cardstock to give a watercolour effect.  I then cut it into the shape of a banner and added the sentiment .

I am also adding my card to these challenges:
Little Red Wagon- DIMENSIONAL
Simon Says Stamp- SPECIAL GIRL
Addicted to Stamps- ANYTHING GOES
Virginia's View #1- WATERCOLOURING
