Year of Flowers - Roses

This is my first card with last months new PTI Year of Flowers Rose and it owes more than a few shakes to this gorgeous card of Maile Belle's. As soon as I saw it I had to try it.

I coloured the rose and leaves with copic markers and the sentiment comes from Damask Designs.























Here is a little close up of the rose - I have many roses but this is my favourite so far - it's just so big!
As I used my circle nestabilities to die cut the white circle (love that white space) I'm slipping it in for the latest challenge over at a Passion for Papertrey - please do go check out what the girls have made!
